Stoke City have swooped to bring Blackburn midfielder Steven N’Zonzi to the Britannia Stadium.
N’Zonzi has been the subject of speculation from a number of clubs – including Sunderland – but Tony Pulis did the most to capture the versatile Frenchman.
The 23-year-old has refused to play for Rovers and was holding out for a return to the Premier League.
N’Zonzi follows Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam to Stoke.
