Andy Wilkinson: Made his first-team debut for Stoke back in 2001

The club confirmed that the defender has been retained for next season despite struggling for regular first-team football over the last 12 months.

The 29-year-old made only six appearances in all competitions last season, but he remains part of Potters boss Mark Hughes' plans for the next campaign.

Wilkinson, who made his first-team debut for the club in 2001, is now determined to force his way back into contention for a regular place in the senior side.

"I am very happy to sign again for Stoke. This is a club that I love and I want to stay at," Wilkinson told the club's official website.

"It would be hard for me to leave, so it wasn't a hard decision to make and I am delighted to get the deal done.

"It's been a frustrating season for me, not playing as many games as I would have liked to, but that is a credit to the lads who have played.

"There have not been many chances to be involved but I feel that I still have something to offer, which is why I am happy to stay.

"I need to keep working hard and hopefully my chance will come again."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
