Popular defender signs new five-year deal...
MORITZ BAUER has signed a new five-year Stoke City contract, committing him to the Club until the summer of 2023.
The Austrian international only joined the Potters from Rubin Kazan in January but wasted no time in becoming a crowd favourite at the bet365 Stadium.
Bauer produced a number of eye-catching displays in his 15 Premier League appearances for the Club and has now followed the example of midfielder Joe Allen, who has also pledged his long-term future to the Potters.
The 26-year-old defender said: “I’ve never made any secret of how much I have enjoyed my time with the Club since joining in January. I have been made to feel so welcome by people at the Club and people in the city and that means a great deal.
“The way last season ended was bitterly disappointing for all us but I want to be part of the squad that helps Stoke City back into the Premier League.
“As a person and a player I love a challenge and I’m excited about what lies ahead for us.”
