Stoke City sign ex-Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher



Stoke City have bolstered their attacking options after winning the race to sign Scotland striker Steven Fletcher on a free transfer.

The Potters agreed terms with the forward and he was unveiled this afternoon.

Stoke have been on the lookout to strengthen their attack having been recently linked with Kieffer Moore who signed for Cardiff City earlier this week.

But now the Potters have tied up a deal for Fletcher who was a free agent after leaving Sheffield Wednesday where he snubbed a contract extension.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon had confirmed that he also held talks with the striker, but it was reported that those negotiations broke down.

And now Fletcher has arrived at the Bet 365  where he is  Michael O’Neill’s third summer signing.

The Potters have  recently signed defenders Morgan Fox and James Chester as they continue their build-up to the start of the Championship season which kicks off in a month’s time.

Fletcher, who began his career with Hibernian before moves to Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers, spent four years with Wednesday after leaving Sunderland.

He scored 13 goals in 30 appearances last season as Wednesday finished 16th in the Championship table.
