The Potters will be part of next season's Europa League.
"We have gotten into Europe and that will be special - it is something we are all looking forward to," the City skipper told stokecityfc.com. "It will be something new for myself, just as it will for quite a lot of the lads.
"We know we aren't in there yet though, we will have a few difficult qualifying games in front of us, but we will be doing our best to come through them, and then we can really look forward to what could be in front of us.
"There is a lot to look forward to here, and I am really enjoying being a part of it all. I really can't wait until the new season starts."
