Cape Town - Former England international Peter Crouch says he hopes to extend his time at Stoke City beyond the current season, reports Football411.

The 33-year-old striker joined the Potters from Tottenham Hotspur in August 2011 and his current deal is set to expire at the end of this season.

"I don't know what will happen in the future but at the moment, for the foreseeable future, I am happy playing for Stoke," he told Sky Sports.

"My contract is up at the end of the season so I don't know what the future will hold, but at the moment I will just continue to do what I do - that is work hard and hopefully score some goals.

"It is nice to hear when the manager has got belief in you and hopefully I can stay here for a few more years after this."

Crouch has scored just four goals in 13 starts and six substitute appearances for Stoke this season.

They currently occupy 11th on the table with 26 points, after seven wins, five draws and nine losses. The former Liverpool forward feels Mark Hughes’ side can break into the top half of the table.

"I think it has been a good season and that we can finish in the top half of the league,” he said.

"Apart from at Arsenal (a 3-0 defeat), we have been in every game we have played. Even in the games we have lost we have given a good account of ourselves."

The Potters visit bottom club Leicester on Saturday and will be expected to return to the winning trail after being pegged back at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.
