manager Mark Hughes has expressed his excitement at completing the signing Ramadan Sobhi from Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Stoke City announced the completion of the signing on Monday, after a prolonged saga that saw clubs such as Udinese and Fiorentina linked to the player.

“It’s an exciting capture, I feel he’s a good young player. It may take him a while to understand the Premier League,” Stoke manager Mark Hughes enthused.

“He’s got good experience for somebody who’s so young.

“He’s got maturity and experience. You’ll need that because the Premier League is a difficult league, but I’ve spoken to him and he’s a very mature young man,” he concluded.

The Potters have agreed a fee in the region of £5 million for the 19-year-old, as Ramadan becomes Stoke City’s first signing of the summer.
