  • Liverpool ready to pay Xherdan Shaqiri's release clause at Stoke City

Etebo, nominally an attacking midfielder but can play on the flanks, is Stoke's first acquisition under newly installed boss Gary Rowett - who succeeded Paul Lambert following his unsuccessful effort in maintaining their Premier League status - and much-travelled coach is pleased with his impending arrival.

Stoke have completed their first signing of the summer after agreeing a £6.35m deal with Portuguese side Feirense for Oghenekaro Peter Etebo.

Following a thoroughly enjoyable 2017/18 campaign, Liverpool are looking to build upon the successes they enjoyed throughout the bygone season, with a key factor to their continued growth being squad depth.

The Super Eagles were drawn in group D, where they will face Argentina, Iceland, and Croatia, with the African side hoping to qualify from the group stages for the fourth time in their history.

"We're really excited to have got the deal over the line for Etebo".

You may have seen him last week after he came on as a substitute for Nigeria in their friendly against England.

How social media reacted to England's defeat to Scotland
However, England were undermined by a succession of soft dismissals after Bairstow holed out in the 18th over. He will feature in Nine's coverage of the second one-day global against England on Saturday in Cardiff.

The forward is hot property among Premier League clubs following Stoke City's relegation to the Championship and it appears he is nearing a move to Merseyside.

But they will not make a formal approach until after the World Cup with Shaqiri representing Switzerland in Russian Federation over the coming weeks.

The 22-year-old, who is part of the Nigeria squad in Russian Federation, is Stoke's first signing since they got relegated from the English Premier League.

"Etebo is a very mobile, energetic midfielder and he's a great age".

He made 12 appearances for Las Palmas whilst on loan with the team from Gran Canaria.
