Stoke City: Frustrated Thomas Sorensen ready to call time on Potters career
THOMAS Sorensen says he will look for a new club at the end of the season if he can't win his Stoke place back from Asmir Begovic.
The Dane is under contract until the summer of 2014, but doesn't want to stay on as a reserve.
The 36-year-old has made just one appearance this season, in the 4-3 home defeat to Swindon in the Capital One Cup.
In an interview in the Danish media, he said: "It is clear that it is frustrating, but I still need to arm myself with patience and see what happens.

"You have to see what is the potential (to leave) either in January or the summer. I see summer as the best option if something must be done."
Asmir Begovic's solid form means Sorensen may have to wait until the FA Cup third round in January to make his next appearance in the first team.
He added: "It is not something I'm happy with. Some would say 'okay', I'll take the last year here on the bench', but I want to play and the ambition has not changed.
"If I cannot find it in Stoke in the long term, then I look around for something else.
"But we're not even half-way through the season, so it is a little early to start talking about these things on a serious level."
