Wales midfielder Joe Allen has committed to relegated Stoke by signing a new four-year contract.

The 28-year-old, who joined the Potters from Liverpool in July 2016, is determined to help the club secure a return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

"As players we have to shoulder responsibility for what happened last season," Allen told stokecityfc.com.

"Sometimes in football when things go wrong players try to wash their hands of it but I'm hoping a few more of the lads will have the same target of trying to set the record straight and helping the club bounce straight back."
