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 Barclays 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."
