Burnley To Bring Peter Crouch Back To The Premier League

According to latest reports, Peter Crouch will be signing with Burnley on transfer deadline day while Sam Vokes will be heading for Stoke City.

Vokes signed with the Clarets from Wolves in 2012 could be off to the Championship outfit by the end of the day for Crouch plus a £9m buy-back clause.

Sean Dyche was reluctant to let go of his 6-goal forward in the middle of the season without signing a replacement. An agreement has since been reached which will see Crouch, just a day after his 38th birthday make his return to the Premier League.

The former England international has 106 goals to his name in the English top-flight, having played for teams like Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Portsmouth. He, unfortunately, has managed a single goal in 23 appearances for Stoke this season.

Vokes has faced his share of struggles in front of goal as well, recording 3 Premier League goals this season. He has fallen behind Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood in the Clarets pecking order.

Nathan Jones will be hoping to add the 29-year-old into Stoke’s ultimate objective of making it into the Championship playoffs. Burnley are tied in a relegation battle of their own this season.

Crouch might be in the twilight of his playing career but his 6 feet 7-inch figure paired with his experience still makes him a dangerous figure in the opposition box.
