Stoke City have tied up the signing of versatile Ipswich Town forward Jonathan Walters for a fee that could eventually exceed £3million.
The 26-year-old has signed a four-year contract at the Britannia Stadium, having been with the Tractor Boys since January 2007 – scoring 32 goals in 146 appearances in all competitions.
Potters boss Tony Pulis told his club's official website:"I have been looking to bring more goals to the squad and Jon certainly fits that bill.
"He has been one of the outstanding performers in the Championship over the past three years and I am confident the lad can make the same sort of impact in the Premier League now that he has been given this opportunity.
"The fact that he is versatile will increase competition for places in the squad, which is something we have been looking to achieve."
