Stoke sign Asaba
Stoke City have finalised the signing of Sheffield United striker Carl Asaba on a free transfer.

Asaba, 30, finalised personal terms on a three-year contract after passing a medical.

The striker is Pulis' fifth signing of the summer, following Gifton Noel-Williams, Clint Hill, John Eustace and Ed De Goey to the Britannia Stadium.

"I rate Tony as highly as any other manager in the game - the past he's known how to get the best out of me and knows how I like to play," Asaba told the Stoke website.

"I'm delighted it's all come together. The manager came in for me at the turn of the year but United were involved in cup and promotion issues and things couldn't happen."

Asaba will go straight into the squad for Stoke's opening fixture of the season at Derby on Saturday.
