Stoke City have completed the signing of Wolves centre-back Danny Batth for a fee understood to be an initial £3m.

The 28-year-old, who had been on a season-long loan at Middlesbrough, has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal.

"Danny is a dominant leader. He's got great pedigree, having got promoted with Wolves last season," said Stoke manager Nathan Jones.

"The environment needs freshening up with new signings and Danny will do just that."

Batth could make his debut for the Potters in Saturday's game at Hull City.
