Peter Crouch: Looking forward to working with Mark Hughes

Hughes was named as Tony Pulis' successor at the Potters' helm last month, and his appointment has left Crouch keen to get started ahead of the 2013-14 season.

Speaking to Absolute Radio at Hard Rock Calling, the 32-year-old said: "I've never really had a lot of contact with Mark Hughes, but I'm really looking forward to it.

"Mark was an awesome player and I remember watching him at Chelsea. I'm really looking forward to working with him."

The former England international is committed to Stoke until 2015, but admits a summer transfer is not beyond the realms of possibility.

"I've got two years on my contract, but you never know," he added. "With my history, you just don't know."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
