Hughes refuses to be rushed

04 August 2008 03:12
Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has admitted that there are unlikely to be any new arrivals at the club before the start of the Premier League campaign in less than two weeks' time. Hughes has signed striker Jo and defender Tal Ben Haim since replacing Sven-Goran Eriksson in the Eastlands hot-seat in June and is believed to be in the market for a new goalkeeper, left-back, right winger and forward before the transfer window closes at the end of this month. "There's still time for deals," he said. "We've got a month until the window closes so it's important we take our time and pick the right guys to come in and supplement the quality that I already have. "As we stand, there's not one deal that's imminent. You never know though because these things can happen very quickly." City continue to be linked with Morocco international Michael Chretien and Marseille's former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse.
