Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has his sights set on an experienced goalkeeper to bolster his squad before the new season gets underway. Hughes is on the lookout for a replacement for Sweden international Andreas Isaksson, who left the club earlier this summer to join PSV Eindhoven. The Welshman is looking for a more mature figure to add competition to youngsters Joe Hart and Kasper Schmeichel. He told the Manchester Evening News: "We have lost an experienced goalkeeper and if we can get the right quality in, then we will be looking to add some additional know-how in that department. "I think it is very important. Such a signing will help the development of the very good young players we have at the club. We should have experienced cover. "All Premier League clubs carry three keepers and that's what we are looking to do. "It is a case of seeing who is out there and whether we can bring in the right person."
