Lawrence signs for Stoke
On-loan midfielder, Liam Lawrence has become the first January signing for the Potters.
He completed a £500,000 move from Sunderland this afternoon by signing a three and a half year contract.
He told the official website: "It began as a loan move where I could play some football and show what I can do. I'm really enjoying it and the team is doing really well so to sign for good is the icing on the cake.
"The lads have been fantastic to me and that helped me settle in quickly, they're a good bunch and I was told that before I came here."
