Shawcross Signs New Stoke Deal
Skipper Ryan Shawcross has today signed a new contract keeping him with Stoke City until the summer of 2021.
The centre half has signed his new extended four year deal, and earlier this month he celebrated a decade at the club and has more than played his part in our promotion to the Premier League in 2008 and the years we have subsequently stayed in the top flight.
With more than 360 appearances to his name, chief executive Tony Scholes was obviously delighted that our seven year skipper had extended his spell.
Speaking to the Official Website he explained.
'It has been a busy summer for us in the transfer market, and we`re delighted with the signings we`ve made. The renewal of Ryan`s contract, however, is as significant as any new signing we have made. It`s unusual in this day and age for a player to spend so long at one club. Ryan has become synonymous with the progress the Club has made over the past decade and we`re delighted he has committed to at least another four years with us.'
No doubt they'll be reaction from Shawcross himself and manager Mark Hughes as the day progresses.
