Stoke City fans react after Sam Vokes seals his move to the bet365 Stadium

Stoke fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club confirmed the signing of Sam Vokes from Burnley for an undisclosed fee, with veteran frontman Peter Crouch heading to Turf Moor in exchange, as reported by the BBC.

The colossal target man joins the Potters on a three-year deal as he searches for regular game time, having made just ten league starts under Sean Dyche for the Clarets so far this season, scoring three goals.

29-year-old Vokes spent seven seasons with Burnley, making over 250 appearances and scoring 62 goals for the club where he made his name.
