‘Sparky’ signed the Canadian during his spell in London, and is keen to reunite with the tricky wide-man as he plots to alter the Potters’ distinctive brand of direct football.
Hoilett signed for QPR with a reputation as one of the finest emerging talents in the Premier League, after some eye-catching performances during Blackburn’s relegation season.
However, the 23-year-old has struggled to make his mark at Loftus Road.
Hoilett has made just 26 appearances for the Super Hoops – netting one goal in the process – but that will not deter Stoke from making a move.
It is likely that he will be allowed to move on this summer, with the Londoners needing to slash their wage bill following relegation to the Championship.
Hughes is fully committed to altering the perception of Stoke’s style of play by instilling a new attacking philosophy.
Having worked with Hoilett at QPR and Blackburn, the ex-Fulham boss is confident that he can slot into his system and help the club improve on a disappointing 2012/13 season.
Can Mark Hughes change the perception of Stoke? And is Junior Hoilett the type of player needed?
