Stoke City is delighted to re-sign the Senegal forward Mame Diouf to a new three-year contract until the summer of 2020.
The 29 year-old striker, winger, wing back and full back was into the last year of his current contract and he has made 19 goals in 99 appearances since he joined the club on a free transfer from Bundesliga side Hannover in 2014.
According to chief executive Tony Scholes, Diouf will be important to boss Mark Hughes’ line up.
“We signed Mame as a striker and over the last 12 months he has proved his versatility in a number of positions. He’s an extremely important member of Mark’s squad and we’re delighted he has committed his future to us.”
Diouf helped the Potters to three consecutive ninth-place finishes in the Premier League before they went to 13th last season.
Meanwhile, Diouf is committed with his new signed contract and he could make his 100th league and cup appearance for Stoke City when they visit Newcastle at St. James’ Park in Saturday’s tournament.
“I’m really pleased to have signed a new contract. I’ve been here for three years now and feel really settled, really part of the Club. My family are settled as well and that’s really important to me. I want to play as a striker but I’m a football player and will play wherever the manager asks me to and try and do my best.” Diouf said
