Foxes set for clear-out

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By MATT JOHN­SON By JOHN PERCY

STOKE goal­keeper Thomas Sorensen has signed a new con­tract with the Pot­ters – and an­nunced the deal on his Twit­ter ac­count.

Sorensen – who joined the club from As­ton Villa in 2008 – will re­main at the Bri­tan­nia Sta­dium un­til the end of the 2013/14 sea­son.

The Dane tweeted: “Just signed a new con­tract this morn­ing.

“Proud to be a Pot­ter for an­other two-and-a-half years.”

The 35-year-old has played 13 games this sea­son – five in the league, six in Europe and two in the Car­ling Cup. NIGEL PEAR­SON is ready to boot out four play­ers in a big Jan­uary clear-out at Le­ices­ter.

Foxes boss Pear­son will send Man City star Michael John­son and St Eti­enne’s Gel­son Fer­nan­des back to their par­ent clubs early.

John­son has not played since Pear­son’s ap­point­ment while Fer­nan­des is not in the Le­ices­ter chief ’s plans. He also wants to can­cel the con­tracts of fringe stars Michael Ball and Bruno Berner.

Pear­son said: “We’ve got quite a lot of work to do to get this squad into shape and be chal­leng­ing at the right end of the ta­ble.”
