Taylor Poole has become Stoke's fifth signing for the 2010 season
Stoke Potters have beaten off several Premier League clubs to sign teenager Taylor Poole on loan from Peterborough for the 2010 season.
The 17-year-old Australian joins the Potters on a 5.00 average for the new season, which starts in March.
Potters boss Dave Tattum said: "I've worked very hard over the last few weeks to make this happen.
"Taylor is a great prospect, he's talented, ambitious and wants to win things as we all do here at Stoke.
Poole becomes the fifth rider named by the Potters for next season, joining skipper Jason Bunyan, Hynek Stichauer, Ricky Wells and James Holder as confirmed starters for 2010.
