Stoke City have completed the signing of Preston winger Danny Pugh for £500,000 after a successful loan spell.
Pugh impressed Tony Pulis enough to make his move permanent
Pugh has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal at the Britannia Stadium and is manager Tony Pulis' third signing during the January transfer window.
The 25-year-old joined the Potters on loan in November and has started 15 games for the Championship side.
Potters boss Pulis told the club's website: "He's a big part of the team and I'm delighted to tie him down."
