Stoke City manager Mark Hughes close to signing new deal

According to Sky Sports, Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is to sign a contract extension, keeping him at the Britannia Stadium for two extra years on his current deal.

Hughes joined the club in the summer of 2013, replacing long-serving Tony Pulis, and led the Potters to their highest Premier League finish in his first campaign at the club. Stoke City are currently 10th in the table this season, and a club source said: “We’re really pleased with job Mark Hughes is doing. It’s a good fit, and we hope he stays with us for many years to come.”

Stoke are harbouring hopes of slowing climbing up the table and pushing for cup runs as well as being a side pushing for the European places in due time, but Hughes has worked hard bringing in a new style of play, while keeping the club’s philosophy in place too.
