first_img1 Norwich winger Nathan Redmond is a target for Stoke Stoke boss Mark Hughes has admitted Norwich winger Nathan Redmond is a target for the club.Liverpool’s Oussama Assaidi, who spent last season on loan at the Britannia Stadium, is the Welsh manager’s first choice but agreeing a fee is proving a stumbling block for the two clubs. Redmond, 20, only joined the Canaries from Birmingham last summer but impressed in the Premier League despite the club’s relegation.And Hughes confessed the Potters were tempted by signing the England Under-21 international.“There is interest there – he’s a good young player and a player we would like.”However, the Manchester United legend struck a note of caution, claiming a deal could be some way off.“He’s not our player, he’s Norwich’s player, and they are obviously well within their rights to retain him,” he added to Sky Sports.“He’s under contract to them and there is nothing moving at the moment. So we’ll just have to bide our time maybe.”last_img read more
