He becomes Stoke’s 3rd summer signing
Stoke City have announced the signing of Hannover 96 striker Joselu for a fee of £5.75 million.
The former Spain under 21 international scored eight Bundesliga goals in 30 appearances last season.
He is Stoke‘s third signing of the summer, along with defender Philipp Wollscheid and Danish goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard.
Joselu was seen at the club’s training ground on Tuesday morning ahead of a proposed move.
Potters manager Mark Hughes is looking forward to working with the player.
Mark Hughes Statement
He said: “Joselu has an excellent pedigree and is a player we have been tracking for some time.
“He has skills and attributes that are different to what we already have within the squad but will complement the attacking players we already have at our disposal.
“Joselu is excited about testing himself in the Premier League and we’re delighted to have him with us.”
The 25 year old started his career at Celta Vigo, before joining Real Madrid‘s B team in 2011. He moved to Hoffenheim and then Hannover.
