The Denmark international has found himself playing second fiddle to Asmir Begovic this season, with his only performance coming in the Capital One Cup defeat to Swindon.

Sorensen admits he is frustrated by his lack of action and will consider his options if the situation does not change soon.

"It is clear that it is frustrating, but I still need to arm myself with patience and see what happens," Sorensen told Onside.dk.

"You have to see what is the potential [to leave] either in January or the summer. I see summer as the best option if something must be done.

"If this situation is the same for the summer I will do everything to try to find some playing time elsewhere."

Sorensen insists he is not satisfied to sit on the bench as he wants to be playing at this stage of his career.

"It is not something I'm happy with. Some would say 'okay, I'll take the last year here on the bench', but I want to play and the ambition has not changed.

"If I cannot find it in Stoke in the long-term, then I look around for something else.

"But we're not even halfway through the season, so it will be a little early to start talking about these things on a serious level.

"It will probably be closer to the summer before we can make a proper decision about it."

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.
