manager has confirmed that deal for international should be sealed soon, saying that they hope to have him in time for team’s training camp in USA.

Stoke are very close to finalizing the transfer for Sobhi after accepted The Potter’s improved bid, despite a late inclusion from Serie A club Fiorentina in order to hijack the deal.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has completed a medical for Stoke City last week, with Hughes assuring the transfer should be completed in the next few days.

“I understand that we are trying to get him [Sobhi] the right visas to come and join us,” Hughes said on Saturday.

“It can take us a few days and once that is resolved he can come and join us. The process is a bit frustrating but there’s no problem. We hope to see him out in America or if not, when we get back,” he added.

The 52-year-old coach had previously heaped praise on the Egyptian youngster and admitted that they got high hopes for him.
