Thomas Sorensen yet to agree new contract

Stoke City stopper, Thomas Sorensen, is still yet to agree a new contract according to the player.

The Danish international has gone through six months of unsuccessful negotiations and Manchester City, West Brom and Bayern Munich are thought to be interested in gaining the goalkeeper’s signature.

Sorensen is looking for a deal that will see him through to retirement, but at the age of 35, Tony Pulis is wary of how efficiently he spends his wage budget.

Sorensen commented on the matter, saying: “It’s frustrating when you just want to play football but the situation makes it a bit complicated at the moment.”

Manchester City are expected to want the keeper for backup to Joe Hart while West Brom, who recently sold Scott Carson to Bursaspor, are looking for a new No.1.

Asmir Begovic is a considerable factor in the equation also as 35 year-old Sorensen is looking for first-team football. Something he may not be guaranteed after playing second-string to the Bosnian Begovic last season.
