Stoke City have recently confirmed that Sam Clucas has signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2023.
Clucas first signed for the Potters back in 2018, and has gone on to make 100 appearances in total for the Championship side, having previously been on the books with the likes of Swansea City and Hull City earlier in his career.
He had previously been linked with a move away from the bet365 Stadium this summer, with West Brom being one of the clubs reportedly interested in striking a deal to sign the 30-year-old, according to Football Insider.
But Clucas has poured cold water on any rumours on a summer departure, and has committed his future to Stoke City ahead of the new Championship season.

Stoke City boss Michael O’Neill expressed his delight at Clucas’ decision to sign a new deal, and labelled him as an ‘important player’.
“Sam has been an important player for the Club over the past three years and we are delighted that he is committed to us for at least another two years.”
Plenty of Stoke City supporters took to social media to react to the news of Clucas’ new contract being confirmed.

Great news. Thought he was gone and he would have been a big loss. Hope he can recapture his form. Now get Powell done lads

Great attitude from Clucas, could just have sat on his high wage for 12 months, but clearly wants to play – I’m sure this new deal will be a reduced wage over a longer period

Was ridiculous to even consider letting him go!
Now PLAY him, regularly, in his best position.
Glad to have you staying with us Sam.

Assume it's on much reduced terms. If yes fully fit yes a good player.
