In line with reports from the Daily Star, current Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is expected to sign a ‘bumper’ new deal with the Potters, supposedly in the region of £7million across a period of three years.
The boardroom staff at the Britannia Stadium are said to be delighted with the ex-Blackburn, Manchester City and Fulham boss for the progress he has made with Stoke in recent seasons.
Despite many claiming that his side still in-fact display many of the hall-marks that saw them branded as an ‘anti-football’ team under Tony Pulis, many within the current footballing community have been generous in their praise for Mark Hughes and the job he has done since replacing Pulis.
They have been one of the most in-form teams throughout the 2015 calendar year – and with the likes of Bojan hopefully returning to first team action sooner rather than later for – Stoke City have more than justified their position as a top-flight team in the English game.
After what seemed to be a slight decline in the Welshman’s career, Hughes has once again successfully re-established himself as a solid Premier League manager with this latest contract extension.
