Stoke City sign Dynamo Kiev left-back Goran Popov on a season-long loan.

Stoke City have revealed that they have agreed a deal for Macedonian international Goran Popov.

The Potters have captured the left-back on a season-long loan deal from Dynamo Kiev.

The 27-year-old first caught the eye of Tony Pulis when the two sides met in the Europa League last season.

Pulis told the club's official website: "Goran really impressed me last season. He's an experienced player for his age and he has a great left foot on him.

"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.

"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."

Popov, who has won 41 caps for Macedonia, joined Kiev in 2010 on a five-year contract.
