The 19-year-old has arrived at the bet365 Stadium with a big reputation after impressing for former club Al Ahly and national side Egypt, prompting the Potters to part with a reported £4.25million for his services.

Despite having only been with the club a matter of days, boss Mark Hughes opted to give the winger his debut in Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Hamburg.

Sobhi played for just over an hour in the 1-0 defeat and insists he can do better, admitting he is going to have to work hard if he wants to become a regular in Hughes’ starting line-up.

He told the club’s website: “I am really happy to finally be a part of the group and I am really excited to be here.

“I wasn’t expecting to start against Hamburg, but I am very happy to play my first game with my new club.

“It wasn’t my best performance, but I promise I will work harder to be successful at Stoke City and I’m really looking forward to playing in England.

“I need to work hard and when I get the chance I will do my very best for the good of the team.”
