Stoke sign outright Monaco striker Gudjohnsen

Stoke City have signed AS Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen permanently.

Stoke City have signed AS Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen permanently.

The 31-year-old striker sealed a switch to the Potters on transfer deadline day as manager Tony Pulis added four new players to his squad.

Stoke become Gudjohnsen's fourth Premier League club, as the Iceland international has had previous spells with Bolton, Chelsea and Tottenham, as well as stints at Barcelona and Monaco.

It is from the French outfit where he has departed, and he has penned a permanent one-year contract at the Britannia Stadium, despite initial reports that he had joined on a season-long loan.

Speculation has suggested Stoke may have paid £2million for his services.
