Senegal international Abdoulaye Faye has signalled his desire to see out his playing days at Stoke.
The 32-year-old defender signed a three-year deal with the Potters in a £2.25million move from Newcastle in August 2008.
Faye has gone on to play a major part in Stoke establishing themselves in the Premier League and has no intention of leaving the Britannia Stadium.
"I want to finish my career with Stoke City," he told Sky Sports.
"I have everything here and I'm very proud to play for Stoke City."
The former Bolton defender helped Stoke finish 12th in their first season back in the top flight for 23 years and they have again been free of any relegation fears this season.
Tony Pulis' men are 10th with five games remaining so could secure the club's first top-half finish in the top flight for 29 years.
The Potters still have home games to come against Bolton on Saturday and Everton on 1st May, and they could play a part in the title race as they must travel to both the top two.
"We have big games against Chelsea and Manchester United," Faye added.
"We'll be confident playing against Everton and Bolton but it's no problem to play against Chelsea and Manchester United because now we're safe.
"Everybody's professional here and we'll look to play well to have a chance of getting even more points."
