Stoke interested in Mark Hughes

2:43 pm on 25 May 2013

The English Premier League football club Stoke City have made contact with Mark Hughes as they look to replace Tony Pulis as manager.

Stoke have made their interest known to Hughes, who has been out of management since being sacked by Queens Park Rangers in November.

Leading figures at the Potters are of the view that the 49-year-old Hughes would be a "good fit" for the club, but will also talk to other candidates.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is another under consideration to replace Pulis, who left Stoke last week after 7 years in charge.
