Ashley Williams joins Stoke City on season-long loan
The Wales international, who has made 60 league appearances for Everton over the last two seasons, has not played for the Merseyside outfit since March.
"It wasn't a hard decision for me to join Stoke, what with the squad that's already in place here, the quality of the manager and the ambition of the club. It was easy for me," Williams told the Stoke website.
"Having spoken to Ashley he feels like he has a point to prove and has a real hunger," Rowett said.
The 33-year-old former Swansea City player is Stoke's sixth signing in the current transfer window following the arrivals of Benik Afobe, Peter Etebo, James McClean, Tom Ince and Adam Federici.
Stoke open their Championship campaign against Leeds United on Sunday.
