Stoke keen to secure Shawcross to new contract

Published

on

Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes is hoping to secure captain Ryan Shawcross to a new long-term contract.

The defender, who joined Stoke from Manchester United in 2008, has one year remaining on his current contract and is yet to agree fresh terms on a new deal at the bet365 Stadium.

Scholes revealed talks with Shawcross remain on-going and is optimistic the 29-year-old will remain at the club for years to come.

“When you’ve got important players, you want to do something sooner rather than later,” Scholes told The Sentinel.

“But that is a very simple statement about what can be a very complicated and long process.

“There’s always talks. People talk about ‘have talks started?’ We’ve been in contact.

“He’s been a great player for the club, he’s been here a number of years now, been a huge part of what the club has achieved over the years and we hope that will remain the case for many years to come.”

Scholes is also optimistic about sealing a deal to sign defender Bruno Martins Indi on a permanent basis.

The Netherlands international joined the Potters on a season-long loan from Porto last August and quickly established himself as a first-team regular.

Martins Indi, 25, made 37 appearances in all competitions for Stoke, scoring once.

“Once you start introducing other parties into it, you have to take into account those other parties’ position as well,” Scholes said.

“So it’s not just us, Bruno and Bruno’s agent, there’s the other club as well.

“Everything has to fall into place before a deal is done but (we are) absolutely hopeful. Bruno has been a good player for us – but we will have to see.”
