Stoke City have announced their retained list and the the first team players leaving are Thomas Sorensen, Wilson Palacios and Andy Wilkinson. Andy Wilkinson has been at the club since 2001, one of our longest serving players of recent times.

Peter Odemwingie is retained by the club although a new contract has yet to be announced. He has been injured for much of the season, although hopefully he will be offered at least a one year contract.

Transfer rumours are linking us with all sorts of players including Barcelona’s Dutch international Ibrahim Afellay and Konoplianka.

Outgoing looks as though Robert Huth will complete a £3m transfer to Leicester City possibly next week. Peter Crouch is being linked with West Brom and former Stoke boss Tony Pulis. That could well happen, although long term Pulis target Carlton Cole has just been released by West Ham.

Stoke’s Player of the Season is Steven N’Zonzi, as well as the Player’s Player of the Year. Jon Walters was voted Player of the Season by the various Stoke City supporter’s groups. Marc Muniesa won Community Champion and Ollie Shenton was named Young Player of the Season. Special awards were given to Thomas Sorenson and Andy Wilkinson for their log service to the club, both leave at the end of this season.

Stoke travel to Wrexham on Wednesday 22nd July for a pre-season friendly. This joins the already announced Singapore trophy in July. This will consist of two semi-finals played on Wednesday July 15th, followed by a third place play-off and final played on Saturday July 18th. Stoke will join Arsenal, Everton and a Singapore Select Xl.

A bore draw in the end, however our highest even Premier League finish at 9th and points total. Even more impressive when you consider the amount of injuries we have had to key players. Well done Mark Hughes and the coaching team.

Final home game of this season is against Liverpool and forget the Steven Gerrard love in, it looks set to mark the farewell appearance of Andy Wilkinson (out of contract), Thomas Sorenson (retiring) and Wilson Palacios (out of contract & out of sight for most of his time at Stoke). Possibly Odemwingie too, although he may be offered a new contract.

Thomas Sorensen has agreed a new one year deal with the club. Great news and excellent cover for Begovic who has pledged his immediate future to Stoke. You never know though!

Mama Diouf has rumoured to have signed a pre-contract deal signing on a free transfer from Hanover. No official announcement from the club although the Sentinel seems confident a deal has been agreed.
