Eric Pieters: Keen on new Stoke City deal

Stoke City defender Eric Pieters insists that he is loving life in the Premier League is hoping to open talks over a new deal at the Britannia Stadium.

The full-back became one of Mark Hughes’ first signings back in 2013 but is having arguably his best season yet after cementing his place at left-back in the Potters side.

After a tough start to the season, the Potters have won five of their last eight games, losing just one.

Their run was extended at the weekend with an impressive 1-0 win over in-form Southampton at St Mary’s, lifting them up to 11th in the Premier League.

Pieters still has over 18 months to run on his current contract but is enjoying life at Stoke that much he would jump at the chance to sign an extension.

“I will always consider [a new deal] because I feel at home and am always open to talk to Stoke City,” the Dutchman said. “I don’t know when, I will wait and see. This club gave me my opportunity to play in the Premier League and so I am always listening.”

Pieters is also happy with his life off the pitch, which he feels is helping him perform even better on it. “I have a good home and a beautiful fiancée, who supports me, which helps me a lot,” he added.

“I feel I have a home and that makes me train harder, feel better and you can see that on the pitch. I feel good and it’s credit not only to me, but my fiancée.”

    I wasn’t 100% convinced when he signed for us – he seemed a bit hot headed and also injury prone. But he’s grown on me and he has got better every season. He’s now a very impressive left back – there are not many better in the Prem – and he’s struck up a good working relationship with Arnie. Best of all – he obviously loves it at Stoke and is usually one of the last off the pitch at the end of a game.
