Manchester United have signed Stoke City goalkeeper Ben Foster in a deal which could be worth up to £3m.
Foster has never played a first-team game for Stoke
United have paid £1m up front for the 22-year-old, who has never played a first-team game for the Potters.
The remainder will follow if Foster breaks into the United first team and goes on to win international honours.
"Ben has the potential to do well at United and we wish him the very best of luck," Stoke director of football John Rudge told the club's website.
Foster joined Stoke's academy from Racing Warwick in August 2002 and despite never playing in the first team, he made an impact at youth level and in the reserves.
Rudge said: "It's an incredible deal which adds further stability to the club and we couldn't stand in his way once we heard Manchester United wanted to sign him."
