OFFICIAL: Stoke sign Tom Ince from Huddersfield

Stoke have completed the transfer of winger Tom Ince from Huddersfield in a deal worth up to £12m – a club record fee received for a Terriers player.

Ince has signed a four-year contract at the bet365 Stadium with Stoke paying an initial £10m to Huddersfield for the 26-year-old with another potential £2m in add-ons.

Sky sources understood Ince had a medical with the Potters on Saturday and he becomes their fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Benik Afobe, Oghenekaro Etebo, Adam Federici and James McClean.

The move sees Ince, the son of former England captain Paul Ince, reunited with Stoke boss Gary Rowett who he played under at Derby.

Ince scored two goals in 33 league appearances last season as Huddersfield avoided relegation in their first season in the Premier League.

Stoke Chief Executive Tony Scholes said: “Tom has great experience of the Championship and Premier League and he’s a proven goal-scorer at this level which makes him an exciting addition to our squad ahead of the new season.”
