New Stoke deal for Sorensen
Thomas Sorensen has signed a new 12-month deal which commits him to Stoke City until the end of next season. The contract also features an option for another year, subject to appearances.
The former Sunderland goalkeeper told the club's official website: "I am really enjoying my time at Stoke. With the new training ground, everything is looking up. We have a very good first team, things are going well in the Premier League and I am pleased to be a part of that.
"I want to keep playing for as long as I am good enough, fit enough and have the desire. It's fantastic that I have so much to look forward to over the coming months with both Stoke and Denmark."
Sorensen will earn his 84th cap when Denmark take on Korea Republic on Saturday and has his sights set on reaching 100 caps, with Peter Schmeichel's record of 129 caps a harder target. "I think 100 caps is a more realistic aim at this point," he said.
"If I can reach that milestone then who knows, but right now another 40 caps is a long way to go. It would be wonderful to emulate Peter because he has been such an inspirational figure, not only for me and other keepers in Denmark but also keepers all over the world."
