Hughes calls for end to Terry talk

Published Add your comment

Mark Hughes is determined to talk about players that have already been signed by Manchester City, rather than John Terry.

The England captain has been on the radar of the Eastlands manager all summer, but his employers Chelsea have insisted he is going nowhere and have rejected several offers from free-spending City.

Speaking on the club's pre-season tour of South Africa, Hughes said: "We keep on dismissing certain individuals and we keep on giving the same response. There is no value from our point of view to keep on saying the same things."

He added: "I would imagine from your view that you are pretty fed up with me saying the same thing over and over again.

"I much rather talk about the players we have signed. That's where my focus will lie for the next few days.

"The situation with other players, whether or not they are coming to the club, may well be resolved in the completion of the transfer window."

It remains unlikely that Terry will be swapping Stamford Bridge for the City of Manchester Stadium, with reports from the United States, where Chelsea are currently touring, suggesting that he is staying put.
