Stoke clinch Cresswell transfer
Richard Cresswell
Cresswell's proposed move to Hull collapsed this week
Stoke have signed Leeds striker Richard Cresswell for an undisclosed fee, reports BBC Radio Stoke.

The Potters moved quickly for the 29-year-old after his proposed switch to Hull collapsed on Wednesday.

Boss Tony Pulis told Stoke's website: "I wasn't aware of his availability until I got a call the other day. There have been a number of clubs after him.

"I am absolutely delighted to be signing him. He is a top player and has great finishing ability."

Cresswell had agreed personal terms with Hull but the Tigers pulled out of a deal after expressing concerns following the player's medical.

The former Preston star scored 11 goals in 44 appearances for Leeds since arriving for 1.5m in 2005.
