Stoke City have completed the signing of Scotland youth international Harry Souttar for an undisclosed fee.
The Premier League side, who currently sit second from bottom in the standings after picking up just two points from their opening six matches, have landed the Dundee United defender on a three-year deal.
The 17-year-old, who has featured four times for Scotland’s Under-17 side, scored one goal in three first-team appearances for the Scottish Championship outfit after making his debut against Partick Thistle back in May 2016.
The Potters announced that they paid an undisclosed fee for the towering centre-half; who stands very tall at six foot six inches (6′ 6″), though it is rumoured to be around £200,000, according to The Sentinel.
Confirmation of his Premier League switch comes just days after Souttar was called up to the Scotland Under-19 squad.
Mark Hughes’ side travel to Manchester United on Sunday (12:00pm).
