Stoke have completed their first signing of the summer after agreeing a £6.35m deal with Portuguese side Feirense for Oghenekaro Peter Etebo.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who will be at the upcoming World Cup with Nigeria, has signed a five-year contract.
Etebo has been capped 14 times by Nigeria and came off the bench during the recent friendly against England at Wembley.
He spent the second half of last season with La Liga side Las Palmas on loan.
Stoke boss Gary Rowett said: "We're really excited to have got the deal over the line for Etebo. I'm looking forward to seeing him in a Stoke City shirt, as I'm sure our supporters are too.
"Etebo is a very mobile, energetic midfielder and he's a great age.
"He has played in the top divisions in Portugal and Spain and, of course, he's heading into the World Cup with Nigeria, which will be an amazing experience for him."
Chief executive Tony Scholes added: "We are delighted Etebo has chosen to join Stoke City, becoming our first signing of the summer.
"I'm particularly pleased that he took the time to look beyond our current league status and understand who we are as a club, before choosing us ahead of current Premier League and Bundesliga clubs."
