Stoke snap up Popov from Dynamo Kiev

Stoke City have agreed to sign Dynamo Kiev left-back Goran Popov on a season-long loan and the move will be completed on Monday.

Popov, 27, played against the Potters in last season's Europa League and has been on Tony Pulis' radar since then, with the club sending scouts to watch him play against Feyenoord in a recent Champions League qualifier.

The Macedonia international, who has previously played in Greece, Serbia and Poland, will remain at the Britannia Stadium until the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

"Goran really impressed me last season. He's an experienced player for his age and he has a great left foot on him," Pulis told Stoke's official website. "Naturally gifted left-sided players are like gold-dust, so he will give us strength in depth down that left hand side which can only improve us.

"We had him watched when he played in the Europa League against Feyenoord the other night and he did exceptionally well in that game. Goran wants to play in the Premier League and he was impressed with us when we played the two games against them in the Europa League.

"It's a season-long loan, so we have got a good opportunity to see how he adjusts to English football before we make a commitment to signing him."
