Peter Crouch Fears Stoke Exit



Former England striker Peter Crouch fears Stoke boss Mark Hughes will sell him to QPR.
Rangers boss Harry Redknapp got the best out of Crouch when the pair were at Spurs together.
Now he wants the giant forward back to front his side's bid to bounce straight back to the Premier League.
And although Crouch, 32, is keen to stay at Stoke, he admits Hughes may want to move him on.
He said: "You never say never. I haven't been seeking a move or thought about one.
"But if the manager thought it best and something came up that's best for the club, that's up to them.
"I can only speak for myself and I am more than happy at the club and the family is settled here as well."
Previous Potters boss Tony Pulis paid Spurs £10m for Crouch in 2011 on big wages but the forward has managed just 22 goals.
And with Hughes looking at increasing his club's attacking options, Crouch could be the fall guy.
But the former Liverpool man is keen to stay and help Stoke finally break into the Premier League's top ten.
He said: "I genuinely believe in the future of this club.
"When I came, I thought it would be the start of something big and I do think there's more to achieve here.
"If pre-season training is anything to go by, I think there will be a big improvement and hopefully we will push on and challenge the top 10. "
