Tony Pulis reckons Stoke City fans will love new signing Wilson Palacios, as the midfielder moves to the Brittania Stadium for a reported fee of £6 million.

The Honduras international signed a four-year-deal on deadline day and, is one of two Spurs players to head north as Peter Crouch joins alongside him.

Pulis said: "This is a fantastic deal for the Football Club because Wilson has proved himself to be a top class performer at the highest level.

The Potters manager was bolstering his squad for the tough Europa League campaign that will see Stoke travel to the continent for the first time, and Palcios will play a big part in the club's travels this season.

“He has a considerable amount of international experience and played a prominent part in getting Tottenham into the Champions League only two years ago," the manager continued.


"He has great energy and the qualities to become a driving force in the middle of the park; the type of player our fans will love. We have been looking to strengthen our options in midfield and I am delighted to have him on board."

"We now have good options in midfield and up front with these captures add to the experienced additions we also made at the back by bringing in two England defenders Jonathan Woodgate and Matthew Upson earlier in the transfer window.”

The former Spurs boys will have to wait until December 10th before they can take on their former club at the Britannia Stadium though.
