Stoke City have completed the low-key addition of junior goalkeeper Dominic Kurasik this week.
The Australian 14-year-old, who was a Rowville Sports Academy student, has penned a two-year apprenticeship at the Britannia Stadium after completing a successful one month trial with the club earlier in the year.
Kurasik has instantly set his sights on breaking into the Potters first team in the future, but will first have to compete for a starting spot at U16 level.
"Moving to England has long been a dream of mine, I didn't expect it to happen so quickly," he said.
"After a couple of weeks over there they started talking to me and they ended up offering me a deal."
The players family will be following Kurasik to England, and the teenager has words of advice from legend Gordon Banks as he looks to build a long career with the club.
"He gave me some good tips about keeping. I will try to follow his advice," he said in reference to the conversation with the England international legend.
