Stoke City swoop for Kightly


Stoke City have completed the signing of Michael Kightly.

The midfielder was one of several players expected to quit Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer, following their relegation from the Premier League last season. It was reported earlier this week that Stoke were in negotiations over a transfer for the 26-year-old, but were struggling to reach an agreement over the fee.

However, the two clubs have now settled on the amount, and Kightly has now completed his move to the Britannia Stadium. Potters manager Tony Pulis has wasted no time in revealing his delight at the deal, and believes the winger will add more competition to his options.

"There is nothing better than to have strong competition in all areas of the squad and Michael's arrival will give us that in the wide positions," he told the club's official website.
"I've long been an admirer of Michael, not only in terms of him being a provider, but also the fact that he gets his share of goals.”

It has been a productive day for Pulis, who has also been able to confirm the signing of American defender Geoff Cameron. A deal had been in place for the Houston Dynamo star earlier this summer, and the US international, 27, has now been granted a work permit.
