Veteran goalkeeper Carlo Nash has agreed a one-year deal to join Stoke City.

Nash, 36, has joined up the Potters at their pre-season training camp in Austria after being released by Everton.

The former Manchester City and Preston North End was out of contract after two years at Goodison Park, but was initially hoping to earn a new deal with the Toffees.

Nash, who has previously spent time on loan at Stoke, will provide competition for Thomas Sorensen and Asmir Begovic at the Britannia Stadium during the coming season.

"I've said all along that we need three goalkeepers and three goalkeepers is what we will now have once Carlo signs for us," manager Tony Pulis told the club's official website.

"Thomas is very much one of those three as far as I'm concerned because of the quality and experience he gives us – and has given us for the past two years.

"Carlo knows us and we know him. He is a top goalkeeper who did a fantastic job for this football club during the promotion-winning season.

"He was out of contract at Everton and he is at that age now where he is happy to be third choice for us. I know if he is called upon, he will do a fantastic job."
