Crystal PalacemidfielderWill Hugheshas recalled being linked withBarcelonaas a teen withDerby County.

As Scholar of the Year and Football League Player of the Month, Hughes, with his Iniesta-like ability, began to be linked with all manner ofPremier Leagueand European clubs.

Barely a year earlier he was an Under-18, and now the headlines talked of Catalonia.

Theres always going to be an element of it going to your head because youre so young and have just been thrust into the limelight, he told Palaces website. Youre hearing stories of going to so and so, going here, going there. The players I had around me and manager I had around me told me the best thing for my development was playing games. Thats what I was doing at 17 regularly, week in, week out in theChampionship.

Nothing actually came in front of me to go. There was interest, but at 16/17 playing week in, week out theres going to be interest in anyone Rumours fly around here, there and everywhere and 90% arent true. Even if something had come up I probably wouldnt have gone, because players get lost.

ThatBarcelona[rumour] was part of the 90%. Anyone can make up a rumour and put it in the paper and people are like: Ah, hes doing this. Absolute rubbish. I could make up a rumour and put it in the paper tomorrow; its that simple. But that was fabricated.

Perhaps this explains Hughes attitude towards the media: hes not remotely hostile, giving plenty of time and insight for this interview, but he has never sought to build his own brand.

Its not my cup of tea, he says. Crack on, by all means. But its just not my cup of tea. I want to come in, work hard and enjoy my life off the pitch.

I dont mind [interviews] at all. Its part of it. Fans want certain insight to the players theyve paid to come and watch, which is absolutely fine. I think theyll see me working 100% on the pitch and thats all they can ask for. They know. Theyre not stupid, they can see if a players trying their hardest or not.
