Stoke City have announced the signing of Steve Sidwell on a free transfer.
Sidwell, who was one of a number of players released by Fulham following their relegation from the Premier League, has agreed a two-year contract at the Britannia Stadium.
The 31-year-old will be reunited with Stoke boss Mark Hughes and Potters' chief executive Tony Scholes feels the midfielder, along with fellow new signing Phil Bardsley, will be of great benefit next season.
Scholes told the club's official website: "Steve was much in demand following his release by Fulham and we are delighted to have won the race to secure his signature.
"Mark Hughes signed him for Fulham and from talking to Steve I know how much he's looking forward to working with him again.
"Like Phil Bardsley, Steve brings great experience to our squad and I'm sure he will prove to be an excellent addition to our squad."
