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.

Everton weigh up move for Stoke City World Cup midfielder .
Everton are this week linked with a move for Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye, according to a report from Turkish outlet Fotomac. Ndiaye only joined Stoke in January from Galatasaray, but could leave the Potters after only six months thanks to Stoke’s relegation to the Championship last season. The player is on international duty with Senegal, who beat Poland 2-0 in their opening game. However, he has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, with Wolves also taking a look at the Senegalese player. Stoke paid over £14 million for the midfielder in January, but the player only made 13 appearances for Stoke. The Senegalese player did impress for Stoke, scoring twice as Paul Lambert’s side were relegated to the Championship. Everton could have to part with £25 million if they want to sign Ndiaye, with Stoke trying to sell their highly paid starts as they adapt to life in the Championship.
