Stoke have signed 19 year old Real Madrid midfielder Sergio Molina on a three-year deal.
Molina has signed a contract until 2018 at the Britannia Stadium, subject to international clearance, but he will initially join up with the Potters' Under-21s side.
A defensive midfielder, Molina has come through the ranks at Real Madrid, having joined the Spanish giants aged just nine, and he follows in the footsteps of fellow Spaniard Moha, who arrived at Stoke from Barcelona earlier in the summer.
Stoke have announced that manager Mark Hughes has signed a new deal with the club through to the summer of 2018.
Stoke chairman Peter Coates has said he will make an official complaint about the performance of referee Martin Atkinson in their 5-1 defeat to Newcastle on Boxing Day.
In the space of five minutes, Atksinon sent off Glenn Whelan and Marc Wilson, along with Stoke boss Mark Hughes.
"The performance of the referee and his officials was a disgrace, and we will certainly be complaining to the relevant authorities," he said in the Daily Telegraph.
"We cannot accept what happened to us at Newcastle without making some form of representation.
"It's then up to the officials what they do, but we found it hugely disappointing because there were so many poor decisions."
Stoke manager Mark Hughes has a doubt over Matthew Etherington ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Norwich at the Britannia Stadium.
Etherington suffered whiplash in a traffic incident on Friday morning but Hughes is hopeful the midfielder will recover to line up against the Canaries.
