Andy Wilkinson: Eager to prolong his association with Stoke

A product of the Potters' academy system, Wilkinson has spent his entire career to date on the books at the Britannia Stadium.

He is now ready to ensure that his association with the club does not come to an end this summer, with a one-year deal ready to be signed.

Wilkinson told The Sentinel on the fresh terms: "I have been offered it. It's positive and it's ongoing at the minute.

"But obviously this is a club I love and I want to stay at, so hopefully we can get it sorted as soon as possible.

"It is my club and it would be hard for me to leave. Obviously I want to play games and I feel I can do that this season."

Wilkinson has seen injuries and the form of right-back rival Geoff Cameron restrict him to just two Premier League starts in 2013/14, but he is hoping to add to that tally over the coming weeks.

The 29-year-old added: "It's been really frustrating for me not playing many games, and having an injury set me back once I got back into the team.

"But hopefully I can sort it out and force my way back into the team now because I certainly hate watching.

"That's part of the frustration, especially when you're injured and can't do anything about it. Now I will work hard and try to get some games.

"Touch wood, I am OK now. After the Spurs game (in December) I tore a big hole in the muscle in the sole of my foot, which was a nightmare, but I played with Robert Huth (in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday) for 75 minutes and hopefully I can push on and get my place in the team."
