Stoke boss Hughes happy with Sobhi Cup cameo

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes was pleased with Ramadan Sobhi's cameo for the EFL Cup win over Stevenage.

The Egyptian had a half-hour as a second-half substitute.

"He's going to be a good player," Hughes enthused. "We are just trying to get him the feeling of what its about.

"He's got an apartment, so that's going to help his ability to integrate.

"We won't give him too many demands early on because he's one for the future."
