Stoke City have signed Wolves' Nigerian international midfielder Seyi Olofinjana for 3m on a four-year deal, subject to a work permit.

The 28-year-old, who was on the Wolves transfer list at his own request, had been a target for Stoke's Premier League rivals Hull City.

It is believed there was a clause in his deal that allowed him to talk to top-flight clubs who bid 3m for him.

He will join up with his team-mates on Monday when they return from Austria.

Manager Tony Pulis told the Potters website: "He is a great acquisition, I'm delighted he chose to join us ahead of several other top-flight clubs."

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy told his club's website: "He's been fantastic to work with - a really good player. I always knew of his desire to play in the Premiership and this is a terrific signing for Stoke. I wish him well."
