The 29-year-old winger has joined the Potters on a four-year deal, for a fee of £5million which could rise to £6million.

He made over 100 appearances for the Baggies after signing for them from Wigan Athletic in 2015, and scored five goals. Albion are set to bring in his replacement imminently.

McClean said: “I really do think that Stoke are well placed for the future and that was one of the key reasons behind my decision to come here.

"Stoke City is a club that doesn’t want to be in the Championship and I’m the same.

"Hopefully myself and the club can get back there (to the Premier League) at the first time of asking."
