​Stoke defender Shawcross hails Potters' depth

Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross has hailed the club's depth and is confident that the Potters can push for a European place.

Stoke are currently 12th in the Premier League after an up and down start to the season, but Shawcross is adamant his side should have ambitions to finish in the top half of the table.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Shawcross said: "We are leaving internationals out of the starting XI now, that shows how far we've come."

"Signing [Xherdan] Shaqiri took us to another level and shows how we are regarded in European football."
