Championship Leeds United have signed Stoke City midfielder Michael Tonge on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee. The 29-year-old scored five goals in 22 matches during a successful loan spell with the club that came to an end shortly before Christmas.

"He showed what an important member of the squad he is," boss Neil Warnock told the club website.

"I think people saw Michael get better as time went on."
