"There's an agreement in terms of a fee. It's just about making sure Bruno understands where we are going and what our ambitions are and hopefully he'll want to be part of that. I think we are very close," Hughes said.

"He's played exceptionally ever since he walked through the door. It's not easy when you come to a new country and a new level, in my view, compared to where he was playing," he pointed out.

"I think we are very close to an agreement, and when it's done I think Bruno can settle and understand where he's going to be in the next few years."
