Notts still trying to thrash out Hughes deal

Despite reports in the local media this morning saying Lee Hughes had agreed a contract with the Magpies, after five hours of talks at Meadow Lane today a deal still has not been finalised with the striker.

Hughes rejected the Magpies' initial contract offer on Monday, but returned to Meadow Lane today after leaving Oldham Athletic during the week. It seemed apparent the Hughes was all set to sign this morning and BBC Radio Nottingham reported it as a done deal, but the club have confirmed that despite lengthy and ongoing talks at Meadow Lane, no deal has yet been reached.
