This FM 2013 player profile of Will Hughes is the first Englishmen to make our list for FM13. Will doesn’t look like much while playing for Derby, but looks can be deceiving. Hughes develops into an excellent playmaker with incredible dribbling, passing, off the ball movement and creativity. The 17 year old isn’t slow and adding the strength of an ox makes this wonderkid very tough to dispossess. £4 million is a great price for considering how expensive home grown talent can be, but when you consider he hasn’t hit his full potential in the screenshots above, I think Hughes is worth the punt.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    Cracking talent going to build my whole QPR team around him no matter who comes in even if the likes of Wilshere join there’ll have to find another place to play

      Let me know how it goes then, I have been considering a save of just English talent for this year.

    Hi just been checking out will Hughes and massively impressed how his strength has risen by so much. How did you do this? What training plans was he on etc.

    Cheers garza

      This profile is taken from CPU management, so I don’t know how he was developed, but he should be able to progress even better with human management.

  • comment avatar matt March 12, 2013

    After update his natural position is cm, looks like a great replacement for dembele in my midfield, some similar attributes

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 12, 2013

      Yeah as per the changes made to this profile…just the scouting report we haven’t updated.

  • comment avatar Rodd May 17, 2013

    Pondering whether to sign him or not. After already purchasing ward-prowse and i have isco gaston ramirez. what do you think?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 17, 2013

      IT depends how much game time you’ll give him. If he’s not going to play then you don’t need him.

  • comment avatar Ozzy June 6, 2013

    Incredible player. Fluroshed in my Leeds save when we won the treble. Was European Golden Boy last year and is now an undisputed started for England at just 21…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 6, 2013

      He is the real deal when developed like in your game.

  • comment avatar Davey de Bakker June 13, 2013

    I got him too!! He was last years European Golden Boy in my game! He’s the very best player I’ve got. But look at this one:

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 13, 2013

      He is a real talent, seems to be a few of em in England this year.

  • comment avatar dpk04 June 16, 2013

    Gr8 player. What do you i should play him as since his favoured position has been updated to CM and AMC and which role? Thank u.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 16, 2013

      Depends completely on your tactic I’d go for MC advanced playmaker though.

      • comment avatar dpk04 June 17, 2013

        Thnx mate.

  • comment avatar jackson June 26, 2013

    Hey just wondering what mc would you recommend as a must sign for mu

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 26, 2013

      There’s lots of them, depends on what role you want to fill.

  • comment avatar Jordan July 1, 2013

    Hey i am a massive derby fan, so as usual i start my first game on FM with them, and wow will hughes has been the heartbeat of my side for 11 seasons, with 98 england caps and 38 goals he is a monster of a player. his best season for me as derby was 34 games, 21 goals 19 assists all from AMC advanced playmaker, if you are considering him, let me sway you. BUY HIM a complete animal of a player.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 2, 2013

      Thanks for sharing, sounds like he was one of kind in your save.

  • comment avatar vjcsmoke October 23, 2013

    Got Will Hughes on a FREE! After only one season playing at my club and at age 22 his value has shot up to 15.5m and he is a starting CM for me on a Champions Cup winning team. I have no doubts he will develop into a monster by age 25. He has unusually high physical attributes for the position and when his mental and technical skills finally peak, watch out!!

  • comment avatar Rusty December 15, 2013

    An absolute monster, got him For around 35 mil in my Arsenal save, he was 23 yrs old at that time. He outplayed wilshere in the midfield and finished runner-up to messi for the golden ball three times in a row. Must Buy for me

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 15, 2013

      He really is a top talent, hoping he can help guide my Wigan side up the table.
