Peter Crouch: The well-travelled striker likes life under Mark Hughes but is pra

The former England striker is in pre-season training with the Potters under new manager Mark Hughes, who replaced Tony Pulis following the end of last season.

Now aged 32, Crouch has been at the Britannia Stadium for two years but was linked with a move to QPR in this year's January transfer window.

"I am happy here," Crouch declared. "I have had a few moves in my career and had lots of different clubs, so there's always been speculation pretty much every year.

"As long as I know the manager is happy and I am happy, I don't think there is anything to be done.

"But 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."

Ideas

Crouch is knuckling down to the training regime laid down by Hughes, whose methods are already making their mark.

"He's certainly got some different ideas from the last manager, who did great at the club," said Crouch.

"Previously we have been running in the first week of pre-season without even seeing the ball, so it's nice to get straight into the football.

"But it hasn't been easy because the training is still geared to getting your fitness up."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
