Stoke goalkeeper Carlo Nash has signed a new one-year deal to keep him at the Britannia Stadium.
Nash's previous deal was due to expire at the end of the season and the club have moved to secure him on a 12-month extension.
The former Manchester City custodian, who joined Stoke from Everton last summer, has been forced to play third-choice to Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorensen at the Potters.
Despite his lack of first-team opportunities, Stoke boss Tony Pulis is delighted Nash has decided to stay at the club.
"Carlo was happy to come here as our third choice 'keeper, but people should not under-estimate the contribution he has made, and the peace of mind which he gives us," Pulis told the club's official website.
"It is important to have three top goalkeepers in the Premier League and to have someone with his experience as additional cover, so we are delighted that he has agreed to remain here.
"He has a tremendous attitude and great enthusiasm for the game, so I know that if we need to call upon him again at any point in the future, he can be relied upon to do a good job for us."
