Stoke City has revealed through their official twitter account and website that their forward Bojan Krkic has signed a contract renewal, which will keep him at the club for four and a half years more. The Spanish international then took his twitter account to show his glee in signing a new contract with The Potters. The former Barcelona player has been quite handy for the club, both as a winger and as a striker, scoring 10 goals across all competitions.

Bojan krkic came to the lights through the Barcelona youth academy, La Masia. He was the youngest player to make debut for Barcelona, breaking the record of global superstar Lionel Messi. He spent four seasons with the club and notched 41 goals for the Catalans.

He joined AS Roma in 2011, and then in next three seasons, he played for four different clubs, including a surprise return to Camp Nou in 2013. However, he joined Premier League in 2014, when Stoke City signed him from Barcelona for a reported fee of 1.8 million euros.

He has since been the part and parcel of Stoke City, gelling well with the players. Now he has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club till 2020.

 

The Chief executive of the club, Tony Scholes mentioned his delight in the player opting to sign the contract renewal.

“Bojan has made no secret of the fact that he now regards Stoke as his home in a football sense.” Tony Scholes spoke. “When he joined us he made it clear that he wanted a period of stability in his career. It is obvious that he has found what he was looking for with us and we are understandably thrilled he has signed a long-term contract.”

Bojan himself expressed in the club’s official website how happy he is to stay at Stoke City, and vows to work harder for the team.

“The fans and staffs are passionate and I can proudly say that my team-mates and I feel their warmth and their support every single day.” He told stokecityfc.com

“That is very important for me and encourage me to keep improving and trying to give my best.”
