Hughes warning over spending
14 Aug 2009 - 07:54:57
Mark Hughes has warned the rest of the Premier League that Manchester City's summer spending spree is far from over.
Hughes has not yet given up hope of being able to prise England defender Joloen Lescott away from a reluctant Everton in a deal which could be worth in excess of £20million.
But Lescott may not be the only other new arrival at the City of Manchester Stadium before the transfer window closes on August 31.
"We're progressing nicely," said Hughes. "The business that we've already done is exceptional.
"We're really pleased with the quality that we've been able to bring up to this point.
"Obviously, there's still quite a way to go until the window actually closes and we will get opportunities and see what we can bring.
"They will have to be top-quality players to improve us."
Ambitious City have spent over £100million on the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Gareth Barry, Roque Santa Cruz, Kolo Toure, and Carlos Tevez this summer.
