It’s 17 years since Stan Ternent tried to sign Peter Crouch from QPR only for him to opt for Portsmouth, citing that they had more ambition than Burnley, and in the last couple of days we’ve been linked again with the striker who has now been at Stoke City since August 2011.

However, it’s a no go if indeed there was anything in it in the first place. In fact Stoke boss Gary Rowett cleared that up when he told the Stoke Sentinel: “That’s not something that’s been put to me as a viable deal at this moment in time.”

Rowett went on to day: “I think Peter is one of those unique players that I’m sure lots of clubs would love to have because he is so different. He’s got excellent talent, but he’s also a threat in the opposition penalty box because of his size and because of his experience to get in the right positions.”

The new Stoke boss added: “He’s not a player I’m imminently looking to leave the building. He’s a really good guy, he’s great to have around the other players as well because he’s a really professional person and he’s good fun as well. And sometimes you need lots of people like that in your group. So certainly that deal won’t be happening.”
