Stoke have completed the signing of Belgium youth international Florent Cuvelier from Portsmouth on a two-year contract. The Potters have beaten off competition from Premier League rivals Fulham, Tottenham and Manchester City to sign the 17-year-old midfielder. Stoke boss Tony Pulis said: "Florent is definitely one for the future and we are delighted that he has chosen to move here. "It's a measure of the club's progress and the emphasis we are placing on the development of the youth set-up that we have managed to attract such an outstanding talent to this club when he attracted so much interest. "He will work with the Academy initially because he is a young lad with a lot yet to do, but we are pleased to have him here."
