English Championship side Stoke City have signed World Cup-bound Nigeria international Oghenekaro Etebo from Portuguese CD Feirense on a €7.2million fee.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has put pen to paper on a five-year deal that will last him at the Bet365 Stadium until June 30, 2023.
”We are delighted Etebo has chosen to join Stoke City, becoming our first signing of the summer,” Chief Executive Tony Scholes told Stoke City’s official website.
”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.”
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 joined Spanish La Liga side UD Las Palmas on loan with a buyout clause in January 2018 but chose not to make the move permanent after they were relegated to the second tier.
