Stoke City will not break their wage structure for Tottenham striker Peter Crouch.

The Sun says Stoke have a £40,000-a-week wage limit - and Spurs striker Crouch wants £60,000 a week to match his current deal.

Pulis revealed: "On Crouch, I will say I want to do my business the way I want to do it.

"The wage structure won't be broken. The basic wage at our club won't change."
