Championship club, Stoke City have announced the signing of Nigerian and Feirense midfielder, Oghenekaro Etebo for a fee of 7.2 million euros.

Etebo has put pen to paper on a five-year deal that will keep him at the Potters until June 30, 2023.

The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Las Palmas but decided not to make the move permanent after they were demoted to the second tier of Spanish football.

”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,” Chief Executive Tony Scholes told Stoke City’s official website.

Stoke City manager, Gary Rowett added: ”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 included in the 23-man list of Gernot Rohr that will represent Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
