Peter Crouch signs new two-year deal with Stoke City

London: Former England striker Peter Crouch on Thursday settled his immediate future by signing a two-year contract extension with Stoke City.

The club confirmed the news through their official account on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The 33-year-old took to Twitter as well to share his joy with the fans on signing on the dotter line for the Potters.

The former Spurs striker has scored 37 goals in 140 appearance for Stoke. His current deal was set to expire at the end of the 2014-15 season.

He joined Stoke from Hotspur in a club record 10 million pounds deal in 2011.

“People will stop talking about my future now hopefully, and I can just concentrate on doing well for this club which has always been my objective,” Crouch said on the Stoke website.

"I’m really happy here and I think that is evident given the fact that I have spent more time here and played more games than at any other club I have been at in my career."

Considering what Crouch brings to the team, Stoke have made a wise decision by extending his contract. The aerial ability of Crouch adds another dimension to Stoke's forward line and that has helped them win several games.
