Thomas Sorensen has ended speculation about his future by signing a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Stoke City. The 35-year-old Dane confirmed the news via Twitter, saying: "Just signed a new contract this morning. Proud to be a Potter for another 2 1/2 years."
Having reclaimed the number one spot from Asmir Begovic, the Denmark international has started the last five Premier League matches.
He joined in 2008 on a free transfer after five years at Aston Villa.
Sorensen made more than 150 appearances for Villa, who paid Sunderland £2.25m for his services in August 2003.
Sorensen's current contract had been due to expire in summer 2012.
