Glen Johnson has signed a one-year contract extension with Stoke.

The former England defender, whose previous deal was due to expire this summer, is now committed to the Potters until 2018.

The 32-year-old right-back, whose past clubs include Chelsea and Portsmouth, joined the club on a free transfer from Liverpool in 2015.

Johnson, who won 54 England caps, made his 50th appearance for Stoke in Saturday's Premier League victory over Hull.

He told the club's website, www.stokecityfc.com: "It was a no-brainer for me when the club indicated they wanted me to sign a contract extension. I've really enjoyed my time as a Stoke City player so far.

"I still feel as though I've got plenty to offer as a player and want to continue to help Stoke City move forward."

Manager Mark Hughes said: "When you've got players of Glen's ability and experience in the building you would be foolish to let them leave. He's 32 and remains a key figure in my plans."
