Derby County boss Steve McClaren has admitted that wonderkid Will Hughes will eventually leave the club. 

The youngster, who has been linked to both Manchester United and Liverpool in recent weeks, has been in fine form for the Championship outfit and scored in Derby's recent 3-1 victory over Leeds United. 

And, on the future of Hughes, McClaren told Sky Sports: "Our job is to make sure he makes it."

McClaren has insisted that the club must have enough players coming through the ranks to eventually replace the starlet.

"Eventually he will be too good. What we need behind that is players coming through to replace him."

Hughes is currently part of the England U21 setup, having made four appearances for the side at just 18-years-old. 

Derby were able to keep hold of the youngster in the summer after reported interest from several clubs, however they may be tested again in January. 

McClaren will be desperate to hold onto Hughes until at-least the end of the season as the club go in search of a promotion push under their new manager.

Derby are currently five points off the play-off places and travel to high-flying Watford in their next Championship fixture after the international break.
