Hughes calms Bothroyd talk

30 December 2010 06:00
Fulham manager Mark Hughes has cooled speculation linking the Premier League club with a move for Cardiff striker Jay Bothroyd. The Cottagers have been linked with a £2million raid for the England hitman in a bid to improve their fortunes as they struggle at the wrong end of the Premier League. "I'm aware of Jay because I worked with him at Blackburn and maybe that's where the speculation is coming from," Hughes said. "He was still a young player finding his way when I was there and he had a few problems at his previous clubs. "He has certainly matured from that point of view but from my knowledge he is very much a Cardiff player."
