Stoke City chief executive Tony Scholes was thrilled after completing the long-drawn transfer of Xherdan Shaqiri from Inter Milan.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder completed his club record £12million move on a five-year deal on Tuesday which has the Potters genuinely excited.

Scholes told the club's official website: "It's no secret that we have been pursuing Xherdan for some time now and we are delighted to have finally secured his signature.

"He's an exciting young player who is really looking forward to playing in the Premier League having played at the very highest level in Germany with Bayern Munich and in Italy with Inter.

"Xherdan will be a fantastic addition to our squad and adds to the attacking options at the manager's disposal."
