As part of the agreement to sign the veteran goal of Stoke City on the second floor, Sam Vokes went in the other direction.
Speaking at a press conference, the head of the Clarets, Sean Dyche, said Crouch is still "hungry to come and make a mark."

In a calm start until the last day of the winter transfer window in Europe, Miguel Almiron, one of the star players in the Major League Soccer, became the most expensive signing of the 127-year history of Newcastle when he moved to the Premier League club from Atlanta United reported a $ 27 million (NZ $ 39.1 million).
Since the purchase of Newcastle in 2007, the highly-criticized owner Mike Ashley refused to sanction a transfer that cost more than £ 16 million (NZ $ 30.4 million), the club paid Real Madrid to English attacker Michael Owen in 2005.
That Ashley finally yielded to sign Almiron emphasizes Newcastle's belief in international Paraguay. Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez led Almiron a year ago before the player played Atlanta in the MLS Cup and was runner-up of the MVP award in the league after scoring 13 goals and attending 13 more.
"I hope he had to wait more than he would like," said Newcastle CEO Lee Charnley of Benitez. "I would like to thank Rafa for his patience waiting for a player who has been charged for a long time."
The rate is a record for an MLS player and represents a good deal for Atlanta, which had to move to Almiron after signing South American player Pity Martinez. The MLS only allows three designated players to have a salary above the limit, and Pity's cards have given them four: the others are Josef Martínez and Ezequiel Barco.
Almiron started his career at Cerro Porteno in Paraguay and also played for the Athletic Club Lanus in Argentina before moving to Atlanta, where he was one of the two wins of the MLS Mellor XI, an All-Star MLS twice and the newcomer 2017. Year.
Almiron is not secret from his desire to play in Europe.
"I think that it is a great responsibility, something beautiful for me," said Almiron, "and I will try to offer the best I can to reimburse the confidence that the club has put on me."
