U.S. international Juan Agudelo has announced that he is joining Eredivisie side FC Utrecht on loan.
Agudelo, 21, said he had completed his move to Stoke City last week but he is unable to play for the Premier League club as he has been unable to secure a work permit.
As ESPN FC reported on Friday, the Colombian-born forward will now head to Utrecht for the remainder of the season as Stoke aim to secure a permit that will allow him to represent the club next season.
