Nathan Jones has made his first signing since taking charge at Stoke City, bringing in defender Danny Batth from Wolves on a permanent deal.

Stoke have paid an undisclosed fee – reportedly in the region of £3million – to get the centre-back, who has penned a three-and-a-half year contract with the Championship club.

Batth made 16 league appearances for Wolves in the 2017-18 season as Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad secured promotion to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old was loaned out to Middlesbrough in the first half of the current campaign but was recalled once Stoke’s bid was accepted.

“Danny is a dominant leader of a centre-half. He has got great pedigree having got promoted with Wolves last season and he’s someone we feel can take us forward,” Jones – who took charge at the bet365 Stadium on January 9 – told the club’s official website.

“I think the environment needs freshening up with new signings and Danny will do just that.”

Batth could make his debut on Saturday when Stoke – who were relegated from the Premier League last season – travel to Hull City.
