Stoke have signed Ipswich striker Jon Walters for an initial fee of £2.75m.
Walters, 26, has signed a four-year deal with the Potters, who could pay Ipswich a further £500,000 depending on appearances.
And manager Tony Pulis said: “I have been looking to bring more goals to the squad and Jon certainly fits that bill.
“He has been one of the outstanding performers in the Championship over the past three years and I am confident the lad can make the same sort of impact in the Premier League now that he has been given this opportunity.
“The fact that he is versatile will increase competition for places in the squad which is something we have been looking to achieve.”
