Peter Crouch is to undergo a medical at Burnley as he closes in on a permanent switch from Stoke, Press Association Sport understands.

It is understood the 38-year-old is poised to make the deadline-day move while fellow striker Sam Vokes goes the other way.

Crouch, who has been with Stoke since the summer of 2011, has played 23 times in the Sky Bet Championship this season, scoring once, with only two of those appearances having been starts. He also scored against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup third round.

Wales international Vokes has netted three goals in 20 Premier League appearances this term. The 29-year-old joined Burnley from Wolves in 2012, having already had a loan spell at Turf Moor.
