Ramadan Sobhi has expressed his pride in being a Stoke City player after penning a deal to keep him at the Bet365 Stadium until 2022.

The ex-Al Ahly talisman told Stoke City official website, “I received a friendly and good welcome from everyone at the Club, including my teammates and the management team in my first season. Thanks to the fans for the support they gave me throughout last season”.

Following his move from Egypt’s most successful club last summer, Ramadan was not a consistent starter, however, may have an opening now that his direct positional rival Marko Arnautovic has left the club to West Ham. As a result, this season is poised to be a breakout one for Ramadan, despite new competition from German-born Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

“I’m delighted to be signing this contract. I’m proud to be part of this Club and I’m determined to repay Stoke City for the faith they showed in me in signing me at just 19.

He added, “Last season was good but I am confident that the best is yet to come. Shukran,” Sobhi added as he will be hoping to replicate the successes that Arnautovic had in the starting place in previous seasons.

Stoke’s first game of the season will be a tough test away at Everton, who despite their big summer signings still lack a senior right back due to Coleman’s long term injury, which may provide a confidence boost for Ramadan to get his individual season off to a good start.
