New deal for Bojan


Bojan Krkic has committed his future to Stoke by signing a new four-and-a-half-year deal.

Bojan moved to the Britannia Stadium in 2014 and during his time at the club he has scored ten goals in 41 appearances, although he was sidelined for the second half of last season as a result of the knee injury he sustained in the FA Cup fourth round win over Rochdale.

He has become a firm favourite with supporters and he has been rewarded with a new deal that will see him commit to the Potters until the summer of 2020.

"I am very happy and motivated. Stoke City gave me the opportunity to play in the most competitive league in the world, the Premier League, and I have only words of gratitude for their trust and for the way they have treated me since the first day I arrived to England," he told the club's official website.

"Mark Hughes convinced me to come to Stoke, he has helped me and showed his trust in me from the beginning, he followed closely the recovery process from my injury and there is no doubt I have signed an extension of my contract thanks to him."

Chief executive Tony Scholes added: "Bojan has made no secret of the fact that he now regards Stoke as his home in a football sense.

"When he joined us he made it clear that he wanted a period of stability in his career. It’s obvious that he has found what he was looking for with us and we’re understandably thrilled he has signed a long-term contract."
