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.
