Striker Juan Agudelo has signed a pre-contract agreement with Premier League side Stoke City and will join up with his new team in January 2014.
The 20-year-old will arrive at the Britannia Stadium once his contract expires at his current club New England Revolution.
Agudelo will become the fourth American on the Potters' books alongside Geoff Cameron, Maurice Edu and Brek Shea.
Manager Mark Hughes has been wanting to bring the youngster to England for a long time and has spoken about his relief at finally capturing the starlet.
"I have kept my eye on him for the last 18 months and thankfully we were in a position where we were able to pull this deal off," Hughes told Stoke's official website.
"We've put a lot of work into this deal, and I am delighted that we have managed to get the deal over the line.
"It's a good deal for us, because he is a very good young player who boasts a lot of talent as well as a lot of potential too."
Colombia-born Agudelo has scored three goals in five matches for his current employers after moving in May, earlier this year.
The former Chivas USA and New York Red Bulls man has made 64 MLS appearances netting 14 times. He has also been capped 17 times for his country, scoring twice.
