​​Stoke have confirmed the signing of defender Josh Tymon after he turned down the offer of a professional contract from Hull.


The Potters followed the growing trend of revealing a new arrival on social media, having teased at a potential signing prior to the announcement.


Tymon has signed for Stoke on a five-year-deal after making his Premier League debut for Hull last season while still a youth player.

The 18-year-old left-back started four top flight games, and made a further five appearances in the EFL Cup.


He also featured twice in the FA Cup, scoring his first professional goal in a 2-0 third round win over Swansea.


Tymon has been capped for England at both Under-17 and Under-18 level, and was part of the Under-20 squad for the Toulon Tournament in May, playing in all five games.

Hull will be entitled to a compensation fee following the teenager's move to Stoke.


Vice-chairman Ehab Allam told ​the club's website: "The club is naturally disappointed to lose a home-grown product of its academy.


"I believe he will one day be a full England international and I take pride in the work the club has done to make that possible. 

"This also makes it even more difficult to take having invested so heavily in his development through the excellent Academy set-up we have. We had hoped that Josh would remain with us to realise his potential."
