Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has signed two young players from his old club, Portsmouth - his son, midfielder Anthony Pulis, and Lewis Buxton.
Buxton has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal at Stoke
The duo have both signed deals running until June 2007, although midfielder Pulis, 20, has gone out on loan to Torquay for the rest of the season.
Buxton, 21, goes straight into the first-team squad.
"They are two players for the future and that's why we've signed them," City boss Pulis told the club's website.
"We've been tailing both of them for several months now, and the club's recent change of manager enabled us to move in."
Pulis junior has had just one first-team outing for Pompey, as a substitute against Cardiff in the Carling Cup this season.
Buxton made 30 League appearances for the Fratton Park club, mostly under Graham Rix in the 2001/2 season.
Although he was out of favour under Harry Redknapp, he had two lengthy spells on loan at Bournemouth.
