Stoke City star reveals desire to leave the Britannia Stadium

Stoke City star Peter Crouch has revealed that he is ready to leave the club if he is unable to play on a regular basis, Daily Star reports.

The 34-year-old has seen very limited playing time so far this season as he struggles to hold down a first team role under manager Mark Hughes.

Crouch as been unable to overtake the Potters attacking trio of Marko Arnautovic, Bojan Krkic, and Xherdan Shaqiri to a starting spot.

However, the striker recent proved his worth in front of the net by registering a goal in the 2-1 FA Cup Third round win over Doncaster.

He admitted following the victory that he may need to consider leaving the Britannia Stadium in search of a club that can offer him more minutes.

“It’s nice to get minutes for players who haven’t been playing, certainly for myself to get a run out, and that’s a bonus,” he said.

“I do want to be playing. If I can’t play here, then maybe I do have to move on. At the moment, all I can do is work hard and try and get back in the team.”

The former England international has so far registered three Premier League appearances from the bench this season, playing a total of only 46 minutes.
