DONE DEAL: Stoke sign Barnsley youngster Liam Lindsay

Stoke City have unveiled their first signing of the summer, after the Potters and Barnsley agreed a £2.5 million fee for Liam Lindsay.

He has been of interest to a number of teams in the second tier following his impressive season with the Tykes, which culminated in promotion via a second-place finish in League One.

Lindsay made over 40 appearances for Barnsley last season and scored the goal that secured their promotion back to the second tier.

The 23-year-old began his career at Partick Thistle, and enjoyed successful loan spells at both Alloa Athletic and Airdrie.

In his final season with the Jags, the Scot's performances earned him a place in the PFA Scotland Premiership team of the year.
