Stoke - Midfielder Steve Sidwell has signed a two-year deal with English Premiership club Stoke after being released by Fulham.

He will join his new side in July when his current contract expires.

Sidwell started his career with Arsenal and played with different clubs before joining Chelsea in 2007. He spent one season at Stamford Bridge, then moved to Aston Villa before switching to Fulham in 2011.

He scored seven goals for Fulham last season as the Cottagers were demoted to the second division.

Stoke Chief Executive Tony Scholes said Monday after the signing, "Steve was much in demand following his release by Fulham and we are delighted to have won the race to secure his signature."

Sidwell is Stoke's second signing of the off season following Scotland international Phil Bardsley's arrival.
