Stoke City want Redmond, confirms Mark Hughes

The Norwich City and England Under-21s starlet is also reportedly interesting the likes of Southampton but the Potters boss admits that "nothing is moving" regarding a move
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has confirmed his interest in signing Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond.

The England Under-21s international only moved to Carrow Road from Birmingham City last July but doubt has been cast over his future after the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Stoke have been linked with Redmond for some time and reportedly put in a second bid of £5 million for the player on Monday, with the Potters boss conceding that "there is nothing moving at the moment".

"There is interest there - he's a good young player and a player we would like," Hughes told Sky Sports News.

"But he's not our player, he's Norwich's player and they are obviously well within their rights to retain him.

"He's under contract to them and there is nothing moving at the moment so we'll just have to bide our time, maybe."

Redmond, who started Norwich's Championship opener against Wolves on Sunday, made 34 Premier League appearances last term, scoring one goal.
