Stoke City have signed striker Joselu from Hannover 96 in a $8.9 million deal.

The 25-year-old former Spain U-21 international is the club's third signing of the summer following the captures of defender Philipp Wollscheid and goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes said: "Joselu has an excellent pedigree and is a player we have been tracking for some time. He has skills and attributes that are different to what we already have within the squad but will complement the attacking players we already have at our disposal."

Hughes added: "Joselu is excited about testing himself in the Premier League and we're delighted to have him with us."

Joselu, who began his career with Real Madrid, scored eight goals in 30 appearances for Hannover last season.

Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes said: "Joselu was one of our key summer targets and so I am delighted that we have been able to complete this deal. Despite offers from leading European clubs Joselu has decided to join Stoke City to fulfil his ambitions."
