DONE DEAL: Clucas leaves Swansea for Stoke berth

Swansea midfielder Sam Clucas has completed a deadline day switch to Stoke City for a fee believed to be £6m rising to £8m.

The 27-year-old has signed a four-year deal after one season with the Swans.

"I think this is a great deal for us as a football club, especially when you take into account the sum of money he moved for just a year ago," the Potters boss Gary Rowett told Stoke's website.

"Sam boasts real Premier League quality, and the versatility that he offers will be hugely important to us, as he can play in any of the midfield areas, he is very comfortable out wide and he can play at left-back too.

"Most importantly for me though, he has a great character, he is incredibly mobile and he is exceptionally good technically - he gives us a lot of different options and we are delighted to welcome him to the club."
