Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is prepared to stick with Peter Crouch next season.

The Mirror says Stoke will listen to any offers over £1million for Crouch.

Crouch, 33, has one year left on his £50,000-a-week contract and Stoke will consider selling the former England striker as Hughes overhauls his attack.

Hughes will utilise Crouch if no club comes in for him, although it is highly unlikely he will be offered a new deal beyond next summer.
