Thomas Sorensen: Happy to wait before speaking to Mark Hughes

The Danish goalkeeper was second-choice behind Asmir Begovic under Tony Pulis last term, and England U21 international Jack Butland has now returned to Stoke after a loan spell at Birmingham.

Sorensen, 36, has 12 months remaining on his contract, and he is keen to remain at the club and challenge for a regular place.

"I do want to be playing more and if I am in the manager's plans then great," he told The Sentinel. "I am really happy at Stoke and my family are happy. That is a big thing for me, especially at my age.

"It is a long summer and a lot can happen, but when we report back I am sure

everyone will know what the club's plans are.

"It was frustrating (last season) but I have great respect for how Asmir played. It makes it easier to accept when you are not in the team if the other guy is doing a great job.

"It doesn't reflect on my capabilities and I have not changed by ambitions, I want to get in that team and do well.

"But I have been long enough in the game to know you have to wait and see."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
