Stoke City have announced that Mame Biram Diouf has penned a three-year contract extension to keep him at the club until 2020.
Diouf, 29, joined the Potters from German outfit Hannover in 2014 – having previously donned the colours of English Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The Senegal international joined the club as a striker, but has recently been shifted to a more defensive role by head coach Mark Hughes.
Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes believes the Diouf’s versatility makes him a valuable asset, with the club delighted that he has extended his stay at the Britannia.
“We signed Mame as a striker and over the last 12 months he has proved his versatility in a number of positions,” Scholes is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
“He’s an extremely important member of Mark’s squad and we’re delighted he has committed his future to us.”
Diouf is set to make his 100th appearance for the club away to Newcastle United this weekend. He has found the back of the net on 19 occasions for the club.
