Hughes keen to extend Crouch stay

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has said that he hopes to keep Peter Crouch at the club despite having just 12 months left on his current deal, Sky Sports reports.

With just a year left on his current contract, Crouch is yet to be offered a new deal that would tie him down to the Potter, but Hughes has hope that he will not leave the club.


The 33-year-old is currently Stoke’s top scorer this season with 10 goals and has been key in the club’s strong Premier League run.


"Peter has another year and we're not looking to capitalise on any value that's in him," said Hughes.


"It's my intention to keep him. I won't encourage any interest in him and he's not been knocking on any doors."


Hughes played until the age of 38 and believes that Crouch could do the same and continue to perform well into his late thirties.


"I kept going until I was 38 and it's not like Peter is losing the qualities that make him a good player," he said.


"You lose pace when you get older but Peter's never had a game based on pace.


"He has qualities I see being retained for a number of years yet."
