Stoke have signed Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel on a season-long loan.
Van Ginkel has struggled to establish himself in the Blues midfield since joining from Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2013 and spent last season on loan at AC Milan - making 18 appearances for the Italian side.
The 22-year-old becomes Stoke's fourth signing of the summer after defender Philipp Wollscheid, goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard and striker Joselu opted to join Mark Hughes' side.
Holland international Van Ginkel will meet up with his Potters team-mates in Singapore ahead of their appearance alongside Premier League rivals Arsenal and Everton in next week's Barclays Asia Trophy.
"Marco is the kind of player we have been looking to bring to the club," Hughes told the club's official website.
"He will bring great energy to the side and is capable of scoring goals from midfield, as he showed during his time with Vitesse.
"I'm looking forward to him linking up with the squad in Singapore and getting the chance to work with him on the training ground and see him in action in the Barclays Asia Trophy."
Van Ginkel's arrival at the Britannia Stadium comes amid rumours that the Blues want to sign Stoke's Asmir Begovic as their number two goalkeeper and this move could help the Blues get their man.
Chelsea also sold midfielder Josh McEachran to Brentford last week.
