Stoke City sign midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo from Feirense

Stoke City have completed the signing of Nigeria midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo Portuguese side Feirense for £6.35m.

Etebo, who will be at the upcoming World Cup with Nigeria, has signed a five-year contract.

The 22-year-old spent the end of last season on loan at La Liga side Las Palmas.

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.”
