Stoke have signed former Coventry defender Michael Rose on a two-year deal.

The out-of-contract 27-year-old, who began his career at Aberdeen, was initially a target for manager Alex Neil during the January transfer window.

Technical director Ricky Martin told Stoke’s official website: “Due to his qualities and experience of the level, Michael had interest from several clubs and we are delighted that he’s chosen Stoke City as the place where he feels he can continue his development.
