"Micah's not going anywhere in January or at any time. He's a big part of what we're trying to do here.">>Mark Hughes on Micah Richards.
"He's still a very young man, and his football experience is great for someone of so few years. People sometimes don't give him enough credit for what he's achieved up to this point in his career.
"But he knows he's nowhere near the finished article. There's a huge amount of potential still to be tapped in to. It's down to me and it's down to my coaches to bring that out of him."
"His physical attributes lend themselves to so many positions on the field of play. We have to make sure that he's training and playing correctly and learning every day. Without a shadow of a doubt, he'll grow and develop as an outstanding player."
