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."
