Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross has opened negotiations over a new contract at the Britannia Stadium.

The England Under-21 centre-back still has two years left on his current deal after signing from Manchester United in 2008 for £1million but the club are keen for him to extend his stay.

"We've started talks but it's a long process," the 22-year-old told BBC Radio Stoke.

"I'm happy here. My family is happy here and I want to stay. These things can take months but there's no rush, I'm not too worried."
