Stoke City have completed the signing of Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on a three-year contract.
The winger arrives at the bet365 Stadium on a free transfer after spending the last three seasons with Bundesliga outfit Schalke.
Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes is delighted to land Chouo-Moting and revealed the club have been tracking the Cameroonian for quite some time.
He told the club’s official website: “Eric has been on our radar for several years and we actually tried to bring him to the club four years ago
“We are understandably thrilled to have secured his signature and Eric is excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League.”
Choupo-Moting is Stoke’s fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Darren Fletcher, Kurt Zouma and Josh Tymon.
The 28-year-old, who scored three goals in 30 appearances for Schalke last season, represented Cameroon at both the World Cup in 2010 and 2014.
