Eidur is a permanent Potter

The 31-year-old Iceland striker sealed a switch to the Potters on

transfer deadline day as manager Tony Pulis added a number of new

players to his squad. Stoke become Gudjohnsen’s fourth Premier

League club, having had previous spells with Bolton, Chelsea and

Tottenham, as well as stints at Barcelona and Monaco. It is from

the French outfit where the cool finisher has departed, and he has

penned a permanent one-year contract at the Britannia Stadium,

despite initial reports that he had joined on a season-long loan.

Speculation has suggested Stoke may have paid £2million for

his services, although the club have not released any details of

the transfer. Pulis also snapped up Jermaine Pennant and Marc

Wilson on Tuesday, as well as bringing Salif Diao back on new

terms. The Stoke boss could hand his new signings debuts in their

next game against Aston Villa on Monday, September 13.
