38 year old Peter Crouch signs for Burnley

| |

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch has signed for Burnley until the end of the season as part of a deal that sees Sam Vokes go the other way.

Crouch, who turned 38 on Wednesday, has made 462 Premier League appearances for six different clubs, scoring 108 goals.

Vokes, 29, has joined Championship club Stoke for an undisclosed fee on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

“I feel that the older I get, the more hungry I am,” said former England forward Crouch.

“You can sort of see the end, but I still feel fit, I train every single day and do everything the lads do, and I want to be involved with every single game.

“I’ve got the will to succeed and prove people wrong – I feel like I have been proving people wrong my whole career.

“The moment I stop enjoying it is the moment to knock it on the head. I’ll be doing as well as I can this year.”

Clarets boss Sean Dyche said: “We know he’s a good character and he still has a desire. The main thing for me is having motivated people.”

Crouch was part of the Stoke squad relegated from the Premier League last season.

He has also played in the top flight for Tottenham, Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool and Portsmouth.
