Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has revealed he tried to sign Chelsea captain John Terry during the January transfer window but admits chances of signing Terry are unlikely now for Stoke City after the club agreed to make Martins Indi’s loan deal from Porto permanent.
Hughes said: “I played with John when he was just starting off, and it was a conversation after the Chelsea game [in late December] in terms of what he’s going to do.
“You’d imagine he’s looking to have one or two seasons where he’s playing regularly. So you look for opportunities that will give him that.
“We have gone a long way down the line with Bruno, and when you’re contracting players, that really impacts on whether you’re going to pursue anybody else.”
