Stoke sign Sidwell

Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell has joined Stoke City after being told he would not be offered a new contract by the Cottagers.

The 31-year-old’s current deal with the London outfit will expire at the end of the month after which he will make the switch to the Potters.

“Steve was much in demand and we are delighted to have won the race to secure his signature,” said Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes.

“Like Phil Bardsley, Steve brings great experience to our squad and I’m sure he will prove to be an excellent addition to our squad,” he added.

Sidwell, who has also had spells with Reading and Aston Villa, has put pen to a two-year contract.
