Stoke originally signed Agudelo last summer on a pre-contract from MLS side New England Revolution ahead of a move in January - but in November he was denied a work permit.

Stoke have signed Agudelo anyway, though, confident they can win the 21-year-old a permit in March when they can reapply. They will now loan him out to a club in Europe where there are less restrictions.

Agudelo's announcement came just hours after Stoke finalised the permanent capture of Stephen Ireland from Aston Villa and a loan move for Manchester City forward John Guidetti.

Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
