On his new acquisition, 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.” He added.

He is currently with the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of the start of this summer’s FIFA World Cup scheduled for Thursday.
