Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie has signed a new one-year contract extension.

The Nigeria international, 33, will remain at the Britannia Stadium until the end of the 2015-16 campaign but there is the option of a further 12 months.

Odemwingie, who joined the Potters in January 2014 from Cardiff City, has scored five times in 23 appearances for the Britannia stadium outfit.

He missed eight months of football last season with a serious knee injury before returning to action in April.

City Chief Executive, Tony Scholes said: “We’re delighted that Peter has extended his stay with us at the Club until the summer of 2016.

“He suffered an unfortunate injury last season after making a big impression immediately after joining the Club.

“Peter has worked incredibly hard to battle back from this to regain full fitness. He’s a popular figure not just in the dressing room but with Club staff and supporters so we are thrilled to keep him on board this season.”
