Burnley

Crouch targets fresh terms

4th February 2019, 11:31 by Alex Jack

Peter Crouch says he's hoping to do enough this term to earn a new contract at Burnley beyond the summer window.

The former England international secured a short-term deal at Turf Moor last month and made his debut for the Clarets in a 1-1 draw against Southampton on Saturday.

With the rest of the season to prove his worth, the 38-year-old is eager to contribute and earn himself an extended stay in the Premier League with the Lancashire outfit.

"If I do the business and if I play well, I'll be trying my best, so beyond this season, who knows?" Crouch told reporters.

"I feel like a kid again, being out there in the Premier League. That's where I want to be and I'm excited about it.

"I never wanted to leave [the Premier League]. It's a shame what happened at Stoke and I'm just grateful for this opportunity."
