Manchester City today signed Will Hughes from Derby County for around £12 million pounds and on the same day loaned him out to Premiership club Stoke City in which the term state he can be recalled at any time.
Will Hughes, 17 years of age start his career in the youth network at Derby County and despite being only 17 he's still made 30 appearances so far this season in the Championship and has done brilliantly which tells you only one thing that he's going to be a great player for the future.
Shaun Goater has been watching him for a while, in the summer Shaun Goater put a bid in for Hughes and Derby County accepted only for Goater to cancel the transfer because he was unsure about him but having his scouts constantly watch Hughes all season he's decided to go for it.
Shaun Goater managed to do half a season without one defeat in the league and it had, HAD to come to an end through Manchester United didn't it? I hate them i really do. Especially Robin Van Persie who absolutely destroyed my whole defence for 90 minutes! United are now up to second and creeping behind me.

Never expected to beat Liverpool by so many goals, well i kind of did because they are awful on FM now days so to hammer them 4-0 was somewhat a joy of relief and a great home win. Lucas Leiva got sent of in the 57th minute which obviously helped as 3 of the goals came after his sending off!
