Tottenham to sell Peter Crouch for £9m

26 July 2011 08:30
Tottenham are prepared to let Peter Crouch leave the club only if they can recoup the ?9million they paid for him two years ago.

The England striker had a disappointing campaign last season as the north London club saw their Champions League dreams snatched away from them after just one season.

Oops: Peter Crouch's season was best remembered for the mistakes he made

And manager Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his attacking options in a bid to muscle in on the top four once again.

Crouch mustered just three Premier League goals last season, and although he fared better in Europe as a lone striker supported by Rafael van der Vaart, his season will forever be remembered for his mindless sending off against Real Madrid.

The former Liverpool man has attracted interest from both Sunderland and Newcastle, while Stoke are also interested in adding the 6ft 7in man to their ranks, as are former club QPR.

However at the age of 30, Crouch is looking for one final big contract and His wage demands and desire to sign nothing less than a four-year contract are proving something of a stumbling block.

Crouch rejoined Spurs in 2009 having previously served as an apprentice at the club without playing a first-team game.
