Stoke City have completed the signing of Nigeria worldwide Peter Etebo on a five-year-deal, the Potters have announced on Monday.

News of the signing has also been welcomed by newly appointed manager Gary Rowett, who revealed his excitement for the arrival of Etebo.

The Swiss global will now head off to the World Cup and attempt to help his country emerge from a tricky group featuring Brazil, Serbia and Costa Rica, but he could be heading to Anfield after the tournament.

Reports state that the Shaqiri's brother and agent met with Liverpool officials last week to discuss a possible move.

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

He has been capped 14 times by Nigeria and came on as a substitute in last week's friendly against England at Wembley.
