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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
