Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Feyenoord defender Kevin Gomez has said that he is happy to have sealed his move to Stoke City this summer, Sky Sports reports.

The 19-year-old impressed new manager Mark Hughes during two trial spells with the club earlier in the summer and has now put pen-to-paper on a two year deal to stay at the Britannia Stadium.

The highly rated right back will now join City’s youth set up, and he has spoke to the press over his delight at being able to wrap up the deal and continue his education in the Premier League.

Gomez told Dutch paper De Telegraaf: “The competition at Feyenoord is enormous. I have to compete with defenders of the Dutch national team, so I know it would be very difficult in the near future to get a chance at Feyenoord. Stoke City was therefore a fantastic club at the right moment.

“I want to work hard to get some chances in the first team this season. After the first training I received compliments from coach and players.

“The club have placed me in a guest family and I am completely in the English way of life. It’s a dream and a fantastic experience.”
