Stoke City are happy with Juan Agudelo's loan move to FC Utrecht.

Stoke have wisely loaned him out to Dutch outfit FC Utrecht to keep him active for the rest of the current campaign.

Stoke's chief executive Tony Scholes said: "We have signed Juan, but he cannot play in this country, so we're loaning him out to Utrecht to allow him to not only develop his experience of playing in Europe, but also to stay match sharp.

"Hopefully we will be successful with our second work permit application and Juan will be able to join Mark's squad in advance of next season."
