Stoke boss Hughes sets Moses return date

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says on-loan Chelsea winger Victor Moses is still some weeks away from a return.

The 24-year-old winger, who hasn't played since picking up a thigh injury in the home defeat to Burnley on November 22, is still at parent club Chelsea receiving intensive treatment.

Hughes said: "He's still at Chelsea and working with the physios there.

"We are probably still looking at three to four more weeks, I would suggest, so if we can get him back before the end of January we would be delighted.

"The injury is a difficult one where it is and is notorious for having to be careful with.

"The last thing we want is for him to come back too soon and re-injure himself."
