PETER Crouch is determined to make an impact at Burnley after joining from Stoke City.

The 38-year-old has penned a deal until the end of the season and makes the move to Turf Moor on a free transfer.

And Crouch, who has 42 England caps to his name, is keen to prove he still has what it takes to compete in the Premier League.

“I feel like the older I get, the more hungry I get,” he said.

“You can sort of see the end. I still feel fit, I train every day and I do everything the lads do.

“I want to be involved in every single game. I’m hungry and I have the will to succeed and hopefully prove people wrong.

“I feel like I’ve been doing that my whole career, so that won’t change and I still love it.

“The moment I stop enjoying it, is the moment to knock it on the head.

“I’ll be doing as well as I can this year, and who knows after that?

“I remember when Mark Hughes was manager (at Stoke). I think he played until he was 40-odd and that was a target I had.

“I’d love to do that and hopefully I can do that in the Premier League with Burnley.”

Crouch, who could make his Clarets debut against one of his former clubs Southampton on Saturday, believes he has joined a club on the up.

“It’s a club that is stable in the Premier League now," he added. "We’ve got to make sure we stay there this year and build on that.

“For me it’s a great place to be and I’m really excited to get started.

“My game has probably changed a little bit. I’m not 25. But my attributes haven’t waned. I never really had blistering pace, so I haven’t lost that.

“I know I can impact games at this level. I scored goals last season in the Premier League and I know I will do the same again if given the opportunity this year.

“I’ve got to work very hard. We’ve got a good side here at Burnley and certainly some good strikers as well.

“I’m looking forward to working with them and I look forward to hopefully playing enough games.

“And I know that if I do play enough games, I can have an impact and a positive effect at this football club.”
