Stoke have snapped up Kenwyne Jones for a record-breaking £8million from top flight rivals Sunderland.

As exclusively revealed by last week Stoke were lining up a move for Jones to bolster their attacking options.

The Potters have smashed their transfer record in order to snap up a striker of proven Premier League pedigree.

Jones fits that bill and the Trinidad & Tobago international has penned a four-year contract at the Britannia Stadium.

The move sees Jones return to Stoke for the second time in his career, with Tony Pulis having brought him in on loan back in 2005. (Sky Sports)

Tony Pulis has been trying to seal this deal for some time and now he finally has his man. One wonders if the Trinidad international is worth such a fee but I guess the proof will only be in the pudding. The 25 year old is by no means a prolific finisher and tends to be one of those players, like James Beattie, who scores goals in fits and starts and is very much a confidence player. During his three years at the Stadium of Light he managed 28 goals in 88 starts.
