The 27-year-old has been a key performer for the Gills over the past two years but with his contract running down, the League One side knew they would face a battle to keep him to stay.
And, the appeal of the Championship has proven too much for the keeper, as the Potters announced his arrival on their official site.
Bonham will add to what is a strong Stoke City goalkeeping department, with Michael O’Neill having Adam Davies, Joe Bursik and Blondy Nna Noukeu on his books as he prepares for next season.
