Sorensen, who played for Denmark at the 2010 World Cup, agreed to a reduction in wages when he signed his most recent deal in exchange for a bonus every time he plays.

However, he made just ten league appearances last season and is unhappy after losing his place in the regular starting XI to Asmir Begovic. Now, he is not prepared to continue with his current pay deal.

"When I signed my latest contract it was from the perspective that I was the starting keeper," Sorensen told The Sun. "We agreed my salary with a bonus based on performances. I'm not interested in a reduced salary. All I hope for is dialogue."

Sorensen is set to begin his fourth season at the Britannia Stadium since joining the Potters on a free transfer in the summer of 2008.
