Peter Odemwingie flashed a big thumbs-up and an even bigger smile as he signed a one year extension to his Stoke City contract.
The Nigerian forward once famously turned up at QPR's Loftus Road ground on deadline day, only to be told by his club at the time, West Brom, that he wasn't going anywhere.
Stoke are also reportedly in talks with former Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri after agreeing a £12m fee with Inter Milan for his signature.
Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam has announced he has signed a new contract.
The 29-year-old Scotland international, who penned a four-year deal when he joined the Potters from Liverpool in summer 2012, revealed the news on Twitter on Saturday lunchtime.
Adam posted: "Delighted to have signed a new contract with @stokecity."
Stoke chief executive Tony Scholes remains hopeful they can persuade midfielder Steven Nzonzi to sign a contract extension.
Reports have suggested the Frenchman, who has 12 months remaining on his current deal, is looking for a move this summer.
"In terms of Steven, and other members of the squad, we are talking and are in constant touch with the representatives and the players themselves," Scholes told The Sentinel.
"Steven's a great footballer, and obviously player of the year, and we would dearly love to keep him but we will see.
"We don't want to be losing players of quality like Steven but that's not always in our hands."
