Stoke City have confirmed Mark Hughes to succeed Tony Pulis in charge of the club.

The Premier League side issued statement on official web-site saying that Hughes, who had spells with Blackburn, Fulham, QPR, Manchester City will replace Tony Pulis, who left Britannia stadium on mutual consent last week.

Hughes has been unemployed since his sacking by QPR in November, 2012.
