Agudelo finally wraps up Stoke move

The New England Revolution forward had been denied a work permit when a deal was agreed in the summer but is at last able to join the Potters, who are set to loan him out
United States international Juan Agudelo has confirmed that he has finally completed a move to Stoke City.

8/1 Stoke are 8/1 with Betway to score over 2.5 goals against Crystal Palace
The Potters had previously announced the 21-year-old's signing in August but that deal eventually fell apart when he was denied a work permit, a problem that he now claims is solved.

The Colombian-born forward, who joins from New England Revolution, added in a post on Twitter that he is set to be immediately loaned out until the end of the season.

Agudelo wrote on Twitter: "There's no other club that has supported and believed in me like @stokecity FC has. #SignedToday - 6 month loan imminent #Europeanfootballer"

The striker has previously played for New York Red Bulls and Chivas USA in his brief career to date and scored at a rate of a goal every other league game for the Revolution during the 2013 MLS season.

He is Stoke's third confirmed signing of the day, with a permanent deal for Stephen Ireland and a loan for Manchester City striker John Guidetti also announced on Tuesday.
