Pieters commits to Stoke

Stoke City defender Erik Pieters has signed a new three-year contract with the club, keeping him at the Britannia Stadium until 2020.

The Netherlands international has been with the Potters since 2013, making over 80 Premier League appearances in the three seasons since moving to England from PSV Eindhoven.

"I can look forward to a bright future here now," he told the club's official website. "I love being here, I have enjoyed it from the moment I first arrived here and I think we will only continue to grow stronger together. 

"From the moment we sat down to discuss a possible contract I really wanted to get it all sorted as soon as possible."
