Hughes insists Crouch staying at Stoke

STOKE CITY 2 ASTON VILLA 1 Eleanor Crooks

Stoke manager Mark Hughes insisted Peter Crouch will not be leaving the club in January after he propelled the Potters into the top half of the Premier League table.

The former England striker scored the winning goal in the 70th minute at the Britannia Stadium as Stoke made it back-to-back home wins in the league.

Half-time substitute Charlie Adam had given the hosts the lead in the 51st minute before a poor header from Erik Pieters allowed Libor Kozak to level 15 minutes later.

Crouch has been linked with a move to join up with either of two former managers -- Harry Redknapp at QPR or Tony Pulis at Crystal Palace -- with Stoke reportedly chasing Hannover striker Mame Biram Diouf.

"He's not going anywhere in January," Hughes said. Crouch was named man of the match, and Hughes added: "He obviously gives us a focus to our attacking play.

"Sometimes you have to take hits for the team. That's what Peter did today. He's an accomplished football player."
