Osaze Odemwingie pens new 1-year deal at Stoke

Stoke city have announced that Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwibgie has signed a 1-year contract extension.

He will remain at the Britania stadium until the end of 2015/2016, but his stay could be extended with the potential of a further 12months. 

Stoke have rewarded Odemwingie with a new contract extension after he successfully recovered from a serious knee injury that had kept him out for the majority of last season. 

After eight months on the side lines, the 33-year-old returned to first-team return in the April draw with Sunderland and went on to make eight Premier League appearances last season. 

City Chief Executive, Tony Scholes said: "We're delighted that Peter has extended his stay with us at the Club until the summer of 2016. 

"He suffered an unfortunate injury last season after making a big impression immediately after joining the Club. 

"Peter has worked incredibly hard to battle back from this to regain full fitness. He's a popular figure not just in the dressing room but with Club staff and supporters so we are thrilled to keep him on board this season."

Osaze also has this to say: "My priority has always been Stoke City and the biggest thing for me is to give something back to the Club and the supporters," he added. 

"I really want to repay the fans here because they really got behind me and that is something I will never forget. 

"I didn't want to leave on a note like this, I started very well here and I want to have a good season this year, which I have every faith in doing. 

"The motivation for me is to help this Club improve and make the fans happy, Mark Hughes has big ambitions and hopefully we can do better in one of the cup competitions whilst maintaining a top half finish. 

"I'm really glad to have been a part of this Club over the last two years and now I am really happy that I can play a bigger part in helping Stoke improve even more."
