The 19-year-old right-back impressed during pre-season trials with Stoke, and has now agreed a two-year deal with the Premier League outfit.

He will join Stoke's youth squad, and is happy to have made the move from Feyenoord.

Gomez told Dutch paper De Telegraaf: "The competition at Feyenoord is enormous. I have to compete with defenders of the Dutch national team, so I know it would be very difficult in the near future to get a chance at Feyenoord. Stoke City was therefore a fantastic club at the right moment.

"I want to work hard to get some chances in the first team this season. After the first training I received compliments from coach and players.

"The club have placed me in a guest family and I am completely in the English way of life. It's a dream and a fantastic experience."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
