Stoke have announced the signing of former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson on an initial two-year contract.

The 30-year-old has flown to Singapore to join his new team-mates on their pre-season tour, pending what the club call "finalising the formalities" of the deal.

Johnson, whose contract includes the option of an extension into a third year, will become the Potters' sixth signing of the summer.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website: "Glen will be a fantastic addition to our squad. He commanded a huge transfer fee when he left Portsmouth for Liverpool but dealt with the pressure that comes with that.

"He's a talented defender who also chips in with goals – as we discovered last season when he scored the winner against us at Anfield – and having spoken to him I know how much he's looking forward to being a Stoke player."

Johnson, who has been capped 54 times by England, moved to Liverpool in an £18million deal in 2009 and made 200 league and cup appearances for the club before leaving at the end of last season.

    Apparently, Johnson said he was looking forward to working with the coaching staff and excited to learn how to do long throw-ins.

      Dude, you are three years too late to that party. Though Cameron can do a long throw.
