OGHENEKARO ETEBO: STOKE CITY SIGN NIGERIAN MIDFIELDER FROM FEIRENSE
Stoke City have confirmed the £6.35m signing of 22-year-old Nigerian midfielder Oghenekaro Peter Etebo from Portuguese club Feirense. Etebo, who will link up with his new teammates after representing his country at this summer’s World Cup in Russia, has signed a long term five-year contract with the Potters until 2023. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Las Palmas in La Liga and will now be tasked with helping Stoke return to the Premier League at the earliest opportunity after their relegation to the Championship in May.
The Super Eagle joined Feirense from Warri Wolves in 2016 and made 45 league appearances with seven goals to his name. Manager 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.”
