Diao pens two-year Potters deal

Diao’s previous contract at Stoke expired at the end of June and he

initially looked set to move on after being offered longer playing

deals elsewhere. However, the 33-year-old has now agreed a deal

with the Potters that will see him combine his playing duties with

a new ambassadorial role. “Talks have gone very well and finally I

have agreed a two year contract and I am very delighted and happy

to be back at home,” Diao told Sky Sports News.
