Manchester City striker John Guidetti is delighted with his move to Stoke City.

The Swede has joined on-loan to the end of the season.

He said: "It's going to be a real challenge for me but, I have trained with the first team players at Manchester City for a long time now, so I feel I am ready for this opportunity.

"It has been a mentally challenging time for me over the past year or so, but in times like that you are really challenged, and I feel I have come through everything pretty well.

"Now, though, I am just itching to get back on the pitch and scoring goals because there is no better feeling in the world than hitting the back of the net in front of thousands of supporters."
