Stoke City have signed defender Danny Batth from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Potters have paid undisclosed fee for the 28-year-old, who has signed a three-and-a-half year contract.
He follows his former Molineux teammate Benik Afobe and Ryan Woods in completing moves to North Staffordshire this month after their initial loan deals were made permanent.
City manager Nathan Jones said: “Danny is a dominant leader of a centre-half. He has got great pedigree having got promoted with Wolves last season and he’s someone we feel can take us forward.
“I think the environment needs freshening up with new signings and Danny will do just that.”
Batth played 21 times for Wolves last season as they romped to the Championship title and has been on loan this term with Middlesbrough, making 13 appearances.
