I think many on here are forgetting that you have the likes of Hayden, Shelvey, Cork, Westwood, Milivojevic, MacArthur etc all starting at CM in the league. Grimes is good player and really set the tempo in a lot of Swansea’s games. Good range of passing. That said, Hughes has a lot more bite and defensive output than Grimes and even then I worry slightly that Hughes won’t be defensively good enough to play as a bottom half number 6, when we’ve got say 40% possession each week. Grimes would be even worse at that. I think need someone who’ll end the season with the most tackles and interceptions combined - like Capoue was, or thereabouts and neither of those players would.
