Stoke City sign Bojan Krkic from Barcelona

The 23-year-old failed to make a big impact at the Nou Camp

Stoke have announced the signing of Spanish striker Bojan Krkic from Barcelona on a four-year deal.

The 23-year-old, who broke into the Barca first team in 2007 but struggled to make an impression after re-signing following two years at Roma, moves to the Britannia Stadium for an undisclosed fee.

A statement issued through Stoke's official Twitter account read: "£HolaBojan Stoke City are delighted to confirm the signing of BoKrkic from FCBarcelona on a 4-year deal"
