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."
