Jerome: Signed for Stoke on transfer deadline day

Stoke have bolstered their attacking options with the signing of Birmingham City striker Cameron Jerome.

The 25-year-old has switched to the Britannia on a four-year deal after an undisclosed fee was agreed - believed to be £4m.

Jerome has scored six times in four visits to the Britannia and Stoke boss Tony Pulis believes the striker is a real handful to defences.

Pulis told the club's official website: "Cameron is a player of outstanding potential and I am sure his explosive pace will make him a big favourite with our supporters.

"I know that our defenders have always found him to be a real handful whenever he has played against us.

"We have been looking to increase our attacking options in this window and he will certainly provide strong competition for places in that department."

Jerome made a £3m move to Birmingham from Cardiff in 2006 and went on to help the Blues gain promotion to the Premier League twice as well as win the Carling Cup final.
