Stoke City have announced the signing of Nigeria international Oghenekaro Peter Etebo from Feirense for €7.2million.

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year contract and will link up with the Championship club after the World Cup in Russia.

"We're really excited to have got the deal over the line for Etebo," manager Gary Rowett told the club's official website. "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."

Etebo, who spent the second half of 2017-18 on loan at Las Palmas in LaLiga, reportedly turned down approaches from Premier League and Bundesliga clubs to join Stoke.

He is their first signing since their relegation to England's second tier.

Nigeria begin their World Cup campaign against Croatia in Kaliningrad on Saturday.

Southampton interested in move for Cameron .
Southampton are interested in a deal for Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron this summer. According to The Stoke Sentinel, Southampton manager Mark Hughes is keen on bringing Cameron to St. Mary’s. Hughes managed Cameron at Stoke during his years there, turning the defender into a consistent Premier League performer. Following Stoke’s relegation to the Championship this summer, a number of clubs are said to be eyeing a move for Cameron. The report claims that Cameron has a release clause in his Stoke contract, which will make it easier for Southampton if they are to go ahead with pursuing the defender. It is claimed to be in excess of £5m for the 32-year-old, although no exact price is given. Cameron has made almost 200 appearances for Stoke since joining the club in 2012 and has made 168 Premier League appearances. Hughes is looking to strengthen his side this summer but is yet to make an addition to his squad.
