Ness agrees to join Stoke City

Scotland U-21 international poised to move to the Potters on a free transfer

Stoke City have announced that midfielder Jamie Ness has agreed personal terms on a move to the Britannia Stadium.

The 21-year-old will switch to the Barclays Premier League after exercising his right to leave Rangers as a free agent.

Ness will complete his transfer to the Potters once the club receive international clearance.

"Jamie is a lad with enormous potential"
- Tony Pulis

"Jamie is a lad with enormous potential who is clearly determined to make the most of this fresh start in the game," Stoke City manager Tony Pulis told the club's official website.

"It's important that we introduce some young blood in strengthening the squad and he certainly fits the bill as someone tipped for a bright future."

Ness made his Rangers debut as a substitute in the 4-1 victory over Motherwell in December 2010.

The Scottish Under-21 international made another 10 league appearances that season, while he scored in the 2-2 Scottish FA Cup draw against Old Firm rivals Celtic.

He made five league appearances last season, scoring his first SPL goal in the 5-0 win against Dundee United in May.
