The Morocco international spent last season on loan at the Britannia Stadium and Hughes is keen to bring the winger back on a permanent deal.

Initially the Reds' asking price of £7million was perceived to be a stumbling block and then reports emerged over the weekend that the player's wage demands were an issue.

However, Hughes remains hopeful an agreement can be reached.

"It's on-going and these things happen. Everybody knows we are interested and that is still the case," he told The Sentinel.
