Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is hopeful that the club will offer him a new deal before the end of the current campaign.
The former England international is out of contract in the summer and is currently able to talk to foreign clubs about a deal at the end of the campaign.
The former Tottenham striker has netted four times in 19 appearances this season and has played a pivotal role in Mark Hughes’ side.
Stoke, 31.00 to win the FA Cup, are currently 11th in the Premier League table after a decent first half of the season. The Potters are seven points away from the drop zone but they are eyeing a top-10 finish under Hughes.
According to reports, new West Brom boss Tony Pulis is interested in Crouch’s services but the 33-year-old is hoping to stay at the Britannia Stadium.
“I don’t know what will happen in the future but at the moment, for the foreseeable future, I am happy playing for Stoke,” he said.
“My contract is up at the end of the season so I don’t know what the future will hold, but at the moment I will just continue to do what I do – that is work hard and hopefully score some goals.
“It is nice to hear when the manager has got belief in you and hopefully I can stay here for a few more years after this.
“I think it has been a good season and that we can finish in the top half of the league.”
