The 26-year-old has kept 14 clean sheets in 37 matches this season for the Potters.

Stoke boss Nathan Jones could need the cash in order to shape his own recruitment drive.
Newcastle can show real ambition by landing a goalkeeper who would massively improve their team.
The Magpies can land a custodian who boasts superb distribution, commands his box with aplomb and who is yet to hit peak form.
Benitez would dearly like to keep Dubravka, but if he can’t then he should do all he can to secure Butland.
