Stoke City have signed Netherlands winger Ibrahim Afellay.

The 29-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Britannia stadium club after seeing out his contract with Barcelona over the course of the summer.

He becomes the fourth ex-Barca player to join Mark Hughes side after Bojan Krkic, Marc Muniesa and Moha El Quirachi.

Stoke Chief Executive Tony Scholes said: “It’s no secret that Ibrahim was wanted by a number of clubs and we are understandably delighted that he has chosen to join us.

“He’s clearly excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League and the fact that he knows so many players who are already at the Club will no doubt help him settle into his new surroundings.”
