Mark Hughes: We won't be discussing Victor Moses' future any time soon

Mark Hughes also gave an injury update on his squad ahead of Sunday's match with Tottenham as well as commenting on the future of Moses.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has said they will not be discussing the future of Victor Moses any time soon after the winger made an impressive start to his loan spell at the Britannia Stadium.

Moses has made a significant impact for the Potters so far, with the 23-year-old scoring one goal and making five assists during his 10 appearances in all competitions so far this season, following on from a disappointing loan spell at Liverpool last season.

The Stoke manager was asked about comments Moses made when the winger said he was 'still a Chelsea player'.

Hughes told his pre-match press conference ahead of the game with Tottenham: "Victor is right in that he is a Chelsea player. We are delighted with what he is producing. Chelsea wanted to enable him to get his confidence levels up again which we have done. Both clubs are delighted with what he is producing but other than that there is not a lot more to say on the topic. We are not at the point to discuss his future any time soon."

Whilst Moses' future isn't on the agenda for now, what is is the meeting with Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday lunchtime, with Spurs having to endure a midweek trip to Greece as they beat Asteras Tripolis 2-1 in the Europa League last night - but Hughes doesn't think that will have too much of an effect on the game.

He said: "Playing in midweek can have an impact particularly when you are abroad, although I don't anticipate them having too much of a problem when we face them.

"What you know with Spurs is that on their day they can beat anyone on their day. If they play to their maximum then they are very hard to deal with but we will go Tottenham with a positive mindset."

Stoke do have a couple of injury worries ahead of Sunday's trip to North London, however, with defender Dionatan Teixeira out for up to eight weeks with a broken foot, whilst Marko Arnautovic has broken his hand, but could be available.

They join Robert Huth, Glenn Whelan and Peter Odemwingie in the treatment room.
