Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen wants to extend his contract with the club despite being second choice behind Asmir Begovic, according to manager Tony Pulis.
However, the Denmark stopper is keen to alter the terms of a deal which currently has a year left to run as it is reportedly appearance-weighted and the 35-year-old spent most of last season on the bench.
If that is not an option there is a chance Sorensen will ask to leave the Britannia Stadium, but Pulis is determined to hang on to the experienced international, and told the Sentinel: "We are in a situation where Thomas has come to us about renewing his contract and that is brilliant for us."
He added: "Thomas is a vital member of the squad. We will sit down and talk to him and his agent and hopefully get something sorted out."
