Stoke City star in talks over move to Newcastle Jets

Stoke City star Peter Crouch and his representatives are in talks with Australian side Newcastle Jets over a potential move, according to reports from the Mirror.

The 34-year-old is still the club’s most expensive signing following his £10million move from Tottenham Hotspur back in 2011.

His four-year contract was set to expire at the end of the current season, but Crouch was handed a two-year extension during the January transfer window.

However, despite deciding to remain at the Britannia, Jets owner Nathan Tinkler is keen on luring him to Australia to play for his side.

“I’ve spoken to Crouch’s management and we’re trying to talk him into coming out to Australia with his family for a playing stint at the Jets,” he said.

He is a constant feature under manager Mark Hughes, already playing in 34 matches in all competitions this season, scoring nine goals so far.

The striker is known for his heading ability, which has caused problems for his opponents due to that fact the he is often taller than the centre-backs of the opposing teams.
