Peter Crouch: Looking forward to teaming up with Bojan Krkic

The former Spain forward has switched to the Britannia Stadium from Barcelona on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Crouch is looking forward to playing alongside the 23-year-old, who spent the 2013/14 campaign in Holland with Ajax, believing he will add another dimension to the side being built by Mark Hughes.

The former England international told the Daily Star: “It is a fantastic signing for us and he is a player we are all looking forward to working with.

“He is a top quality creative player. Maybe we have lacked players like that in recent seasons, so it’s exciting.

“Some of the football we played last season was fantastic and with players like Bojan here, I’m sure we will see more of that.”

Bojan’s signing has increased competition for places in Stoke’s side but Crouch hopes to play a big part in the coming season.

He added: “This club is moving forward. We were ninth last season and I had a big part to play.

“Hopefully I can play a big part this time.”

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
