Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has declared himself fit for Sunday's Premier League clash with Tottenham after recovering from concussion.
The veteran Denmark keeper was stretchered off during the second half of last weekend's 1-0 win at Everton but has swiftly allayed any injury fears.
The 35-year-old told The Sentinel: "I'm actually feeling very good. I was a bit all over the place for maybe an hour-and-a-half after the game, but then I started feeling a lot better.
"I didn't have any trouble overnight, no headache or sickness. I've had a test in training to get the blood flowing and there has been no reaction, so I'm ready to go in training."
Sorensen, who was concussed after colliding with Tim Cahill, revealed he had no option but to leave the field, such was the force of the collision.
"I was aware of what was going on," he recalled. "Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to consider playing on.
"But then I was surprised how dizzy I felt. Everything was moving along in slow motion.
"I started the game again, but just felt 'please kick it out' because everything was moving in slow motion and I couldn't pick up the ball. I was probably out for 20 seconds, but at the time it felt like I was up straight away."
