Ryan Shotton wants to stay with Stoke City - so he can play in Europe again.

The Potters have travelled as far afield as Kiev, Tel Aviv and Istanbul and have already played 43 games, but Shotton is confident they can handle the workload.

He said: "There were enjoyable breaks for us to go to these different countries and it's an experience I'll never forget. If we can do it again another year, I'm hoping I'm still here. I think we'll look back and say we had a good run there and maybe next time.

"It does take its toll but hopefully we'll stay fresh and we'll have the days off that we need. The backroom staff know what they're doing so I'm sure we won't fatigue until May 13."
