Fuller wants to still rule Britannia

HAPPY AT STOKE: Ricardo Fuller

FORWARD Ricardo Fuller would like to end his career with Stoke City. The Jamaica international has been pivotal to City establishing themselves in the Premier League and it is a marriage which he would like to further commit to.

Fuller admits he would to sign a new deal at the club and finish his career at the Britannia Stadium. The front man, who is currently recovering from a serious Achilles injury, is entering the final year of his contract at Stoke.

The 31-year-old is keen to get back to fitness and win a new long-term contract with the Potters.

"Of course I would like to stay. I have been here five years, this is my home, and I would love to finish my career here," Fuller told the Stoke Sentinel.

"I have been working for that, and what I have done in the past is because I want to stay and finish my career here.

Much-travelled Fuller began his career in Jamaica with Tivoli Gardens before earning a transfer to Crystal Palace. He later played for a number of clubs including Preston, Portsmouth and Southampton before signing for Stoke in August 2006.

The two parties have been good for each other in the last five years. "I play from the heart because I love the place and love the club. I am 31 now and another few years to try to finish here would be great."

Fuller suffered the Achilles problem in April and he has set his sights on a return to action in September.

"It is four to six months to recover (after an operation), but I am healing well so the end of September would be four months.

"I am geared up for that, but if not then it would definitely be by the end of November."

Kingston-born Fuller, who has 53 international caps, will always have a special place in City fans’ hearts.

After helping the Potters win promotion from the Championship in 2007-08, he followed up by scoring the club's first-ever goal in the Premier League at Bolton in August 2009.
