Premiership trio battle for Liverpool striker Crouch

Liverpool striker Peter Crouch is the subject of a three-way Premiership tug-of-war.

The News of the World says Portsmouth, Newcastle and Aston Villa are hoping to lure the Liverpool striker in a £6m deal this summer.

Crouch has just a year left of his contract at Anfield, forcing his club to significantly reduce their asking price from the £12m they were quoting a year ago.

Despite being offered a new deal by manager Rafa Benitez, Crouch's long spell on the sidelines has convinced him he must move on.
