FC Utrecht have welcomed their loan signing of Stoke City striker Juan Agudelo.

The USA international joined Stoke this week before being immediately sent to Utrecht due to UK work permit issues.

Utrecht chief Edwin de Kruijff said: "He's an all-round attacker with a lot of quality.

"He is technically proficient, has a huge craving for the purpose, can manage well with a man at his back and is also reasonably fast.

"A guy like Juan needs to play, but cannot currently at Stoke City. We offer a solution. Fortunate for us."
