Grant hopes for Potters stay

Grant hopes for Potters stay

Goalkeeper Lee Grant is hoping to extend his stay with Stoke until the end of the season and would also like a permanent deal.

Grant was drafted in on loan from Derby County following the injury to Jack Butland in the summer and he has impressed when given a chance in the side.

The 33-year-old was named man-of-the-match against Manchester United last time out and is hoping he has done enough to earn an extended stay at the Bet365 Stadium.

“I came here under the premise I was going to be part of a goalkeeping unit and there was no promises that I was going to be a number two or a starting goalkeeper," Grant said.

“So the job for me will be no different when Jack's fit. Hopefully he can be fit as soon as possible because it adds to the depth of the squad.

“My goals won't change. My goals are to work hard and to hopefully do enough so the club will hopefully look to extend the loan until the end of the season because I want to be here beyond January 3.

“I'm enjoying my time, but I have to take things day-by-day, week-by-week."
