Cape Town - Stoke forward Mame Biram Diouf remains committed to the club's cause following confirmation he has signed a new three-year deal at the Britannia Stadium.

The Senegal international has become a key player for Mark Hughes' side since returning to England in 2014 from a two-year spell at Hannover.

Diouf's previous contract was due to expire at the end of the current campaign, but the Potters offered him fresh terms until 2020.

"We signed Mame as a striker and over the last 12 months he has proved his versatility in a number of positions," Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes told the club's official website.

"He's an extremely important member of Mark's squad and we're delighted he has committed his future to us."

The 29-year-old has featured in a wing-back role on the right for Hughes this term as the Welshman shifted to a back-three, and could make his 100th appearance for the club on Saturday at Newcastle.
