Sorensen: Wants regular first-team football
Thomas Sorensen would prefer to stay at Stoke, but admits he is willing to consider offers from elsewhere.
The Denmark international goalkeeper has spent the last three years with the Potters, having previously turned out for Sunderland and Aston Villa during his time in England.
Unfortunately for the 35-year-old shot-stopper, he found himself benched for much of last season as Asmir Begovic forced his way to the front of the keeping queue.
A frustrating spell on the sidelines has forced Sorensen to weigh up his options, with it important for him to be playing regular first-team football.
He admits his preference would be to reclaim his place at the Britannia Stadium, with Stoke having the option to extend his contract for another year.
Sorensen is, however, prepared to accept that the time may have come to move on, with West Ham reported to be among those willing to offer him the game time he seeks - as they prepare to part with Robert Green.
"I am happy to be at Stoke and as long as we can find a good solution, I would like to stay," Sorensen told Danish newspaper B.T.
"But it is always flattering to hear that other clubs are interested."
