Stoke City signing Steve Sidwell says there's more to his game than glory-hunting goals.

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."
