Stoke City boss Tony Pulis expects his new signings to show the same application as his squad has for the past two years.
"The hard work has paid off in terms of new players which we have brought in, work that has been going on for three months to strengthen the squad," Pulis told Stoke's website. "It wasn't just the hectic activity on deadline day, but a lot of work through the summer.
"But now we have to reproduce that hard work on the training pitch and then in the important games that lie ahead to get some points on the board.
"That goes for the new players too. They have to show the same attitude as the rest of the players and they will also have to work as hard as them."
