Stoke signing Sidwell: I can do dirty work
He insists he's no pure headline hunter and Stoke fans can expect to see him getting his hands dirty helping out at the other end too.
"It was a good return from me last year scoring-wise," he said.
"But as I've said many times before, I get just as much satisfaction from running back into my own box and making a recovery tackle.
"I'm a box-to-box player and I think I'm probably know well enough now what fans and coaches expect from me.
"They are going to get a committed performance, a never-say-die attitude and someone who is willing to fight for every ball."
