Peter Crouch joins Burnley from Stoke City

Premier League club, Burnley have completed the signing of Peter Crouch from Stoke on Deadline Day.

The 38-year-old joined the Premier League club in a swap deal involving Burnley striker, Sam Vokes moving to Stoke.

Speaking about the move, the former England international said: “I still want to achieve things. I want to get more games in the Premier League and I would love to add to the 100 Premier League goals,”

“My game has probably changed a little bit. I’m not 25. But my attributes haven’t waned. I never really had blistering pace, so I haven’t lost that.

“I know I can impact games at this level. I scored goals last season in the Premier League and I know I will do the same again if given the opportunity this year.

“I feel like the older I get, the more hungry I get. You can sort of see the end. I still feel fit, I train every day and I do everything the lads do. I want to be involved in every single game. I’m hungry and I have the will to succeed and hopefully prove people wrong.

“I remember when Mark Hughes was manager (at Stoke). I think he played until he was 40-odd and that was a target I had.

“I’d love to do that and hopefully I can do that in the Premier League with Burnley.”

Burnley will be his seventh Premier League club Crouch has played with following stints at Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Tottenham and Stoke.
