Fuller full'er Stoke Christmas cheer

Fuller full'er Stoke Christmas cheer

Ricardo Fuller has given Stoke fans an early Christmas present with the news that he has agreed a two year extension to his current contract.

Ric's contract was due to run out the summer of 2009, leading some of the more pessimistic fans to question whether he would be sold off before too long, but the club have announced that he has signed a new deal that will keep him at the Brit until at least 2011.

Those who had been questioning the clubs commitment to both keeping existing players and getting quality new players to sign up should also be happy that Peter Coates has shown he his prepared to put (what we would expect to be) a substantial new contract on the table for Ricardo to agree to sign now. This can only bode well as Tony Pulis is currently trying to attract new players to the club as it shows that the club are prepared to splash the cash when they want to.

With the Potters already having both Leon Cort and Danny Pugh lined up for permanent contracts in January, if we can get a good run over Christmas, starting with the tough home game against the Baggies on Saturday, it will make the Christmas festivities even sweeter than usual.
