Stoke City sign Super Eagles midfielder, Etebo

Oghenekaro Peter Etebo will be with the Nigeria squad in Russia

Etebo, nominally an attacking midfielder but can play on the flanks, is Stoke's first acquisition under newly installed boss Gary Rowett - who succeeded Paul Lambert following his unsuccessful effort in maintaining their Premier League status - and much-travelled coach is pleased with his impending arrival.

Following the signing, Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes said: "We are delighted Etebo has chosen to join Stoke City, becoming our first signing of the summer".

Shaqiri was unable to help the Potters avoid relegation to the Championship last term following the Swiss star's inconsistent season.

Stoke City have signed Nigeria worldwide midfielder Oghenekaro Peter Etebo on a five-year contract from Portuguese club Feirense, the second-tier Championship club said on Monday. He won't be linking with the Staffordshire club straight away as he will be heading to the World Cup after being selected in the Nigeria squad.

Rowett added: "We're really excited to have got the deal over the line for Etebo".

Liverpool may have missed out on a pre-World Cup move for Nabil Fekir, but are pursuing other avenues as they look to Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri.

Nigeria face Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in the group stage of the World Cup.

He has been capped 14 times by Nigeria and came on as a substitute in last week's friendly defeat against England at Wembley.

"Etebo is a very mobile, energetic midfielder and he's a great age".

The Super Eagle joined Feirense from Warri Wolves in 2016 and made 45 league appearances with seven goals to his name.
