Hughes wants Kakuta on loan

21 January 2011 02:30
Fulham manager Mark Hughes is hoping to tie up a loan deal for Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta. The 19-year-old has yet to break into the first team on a regular basis at Stamford Bridge and could be tempted to make the short trip across west London. "He's a player I know and I like the qualities he has," said Hughes, who has also been linked with Robbie Keane, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Henri Lansbury. "We are having lots of conversations about lots of players but at the moment we don't know if any will go through. There is a lot of interest out there, whether we can conclude the deals only time will tell."
