Edu: Stoke switch is 'finally official'

ESPN staff

US international midfielder Maurice Edu says he has completed his move to Stoke City from Rangers.

Edu, 26, posted on his Twitter account that the switch was "finally official", adding: "Excited & looking forward to this next chapter in my career. Thanks for all your well wishes & support!"

On Thursday, the Potters revealed that they had been given permission to finalise Edu's work permit application after the player had agreed a three-year deal and passed a medical.

Edu has won 37 caps for the US, and his move from Rangers ends a four-year stint in Scotland. He won three Scottish titles while at Ibrox, and had also been linked with a summer move to Championship Ipswich.

Stoke assistant manager Dave Kemp said on Thursday that he believed Stoke were "very close to getting the deal over the line".
