Nash agrees new deal at Stoke City

Experienced goalkeeper agrees to stay on at the Britannia for the 2012/13 season

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Carlo Nash joined Stoke City from Everton in 2010

Stoke City goalkeeper Carlo Nash has signed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 38-year-old, who has been with the Potters for the last two seasons, has committed himself to the Britannia Stadium until the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

Nash will again provide cover for Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorensen.

"It is important for us to have three top goalkeepers in the squad at this level and we are as strong in that department as any Premier League club," manager Tony Pulis told the club's official website.

"At this stage of his career, it was only natural that Carlo wanted to explore the possibility of playing first team football elsewhere when his contract expired at the end of last season, but we are delighted that he has now decided to stay here.

"He has done a fantastic job in the time he has been back with us and I have every confidence he will do a great job if he is called upon this season.

"The excellent competition which we have in the goalkeeping department can only be a good thing for all three of them in terms of pushing them to perform at the highest level, as we have seen from our 'keepers since Carlo rejoined us."

The former Manchester City, Stockport County and Preston North End stopper joined Stoke City from Everton in 2010.

Nash made 10 appearances while on loan at the end of Stoke's promotion-winning 2007/08 campaign but has been restricted to one Carling Cup appearance since returning to the club.
