London - Republic of Ireland international midfielder Glenn Whelan's sterling service to Premier League side Stoke was rewarded with a one-year extension to his contract on Tuesday.

The deal with the 32-year-old - capped 73 times since making his international debut in 2008 - will see him stay at the club until 2018.

That would make it a decade at the Britannia Stadium, having joined from Sheffield Wednesday for 500,000.

"Glenn has been one of the mainstays of our side since his arrival and few players can have provided such value for money in the history of the Premier League," chief executive Tony Scholes told the club's official website.
