The Austria international is showing no signs of agreeing a new deal with the club and rumours are rife he could be on the move before the new campaign gets underway.

Crystal Palace and Paris Saint-Germain are reported to be among the clubs showing an interest, but Hughes says there is nothing to report on the player’s situation.

“No news on Marko, we are where we are,” Hughes declared when quizzed on his future. “He’s back in a couple of weeks and I don’t anticipate that’s going to change.”

When pressed over whether any bids have been made, Hughes added: “Not that I’m aware of, no.”

Arnautovic has been granted extra time off following his exploits at Euro 2016 with Austria, but Hughes expects him to be back training with the rest of the squad in a couple of weeks.
