The midfielder’s previous deal expired in the summer and Afellay stated last month that he wasn’t sure where his future lied after this season. However, Stoke City have now confirmed that the 30-year-old has signed a two-year extension, keeping him with the Potters until 2019.

Afellay told the official Stoke website, “I’m very happy.

“From the first day I came to the Club I felt at home and I’m looking forward to the future and to doing good things with this Club. I hope we can continue to progress and develop.

“Stoke City is a great club. The way the fans support us is special – they are always behind us, especially at away games – and the people at the Club are like a family.

“The injury is all in the past now. I think I’ve showed that I’m back in business and I’m just looking forward now, working hard every day and trying to make the best of everything.”

Afellay joined Stoke City in 2015 and has made 46 appearances for the club.
