FC Utrecht have confirmed a loan deal for Stoke City striker Juan Agudelo.

The 21-year old American forward joined the Potters from MLS club New England Revolution a week ago but will now spend the remainder of the season in the Dutch Eredivisie.

"A young player like Agudelo must play and he can't do that at Stoke at the moment so it's a good opportunity for him and us," chief scout Edwin de Kruijff told Utrecht's official website.

Utrecht currently sit ninth on the Eredivisie table following the weekend's 5-2 home loss to Feyenoord.
