PETER Crouch believes Burnley will suit him and admits he has been impressed with what he’s seen from his teammates in the early stages of his Clarets career.

The 38-year-old made his debut off the bench against Southampton two days after signing from Stoke City on a free transfer on transfer deadline day.

He made an immediate impact, playing a part in winning a stoppage-time penalty which Ashley Barnes converted to secure a 1-1 draw.

Crouch was an unused sub for the win over Brighton last time out but believes Burnley can be a good fit for him as he prepares for the visit of one his former clubs Spurs next weekend.

“When I came here I knew it was a good dressing room, I knew there were players who want to get the ball in early and play in to the strikers,” said the striker.

“I remember watching Burnley in previous years, and playing against them, and I looked on a bit enviously at the centre forwards because they do get crosses in and that’s what I thrive on. Hopefully I’ll get a few chances and make them count.”

Crouch arrived as a replacement for Sam Vokes who was sold to Stoke on deadline day and the frontman made no secret of his desire to have another crack at the Premier League.

“I was very keen,” he said of his move to East Lancashire. “I knew that Vokes was looking to go to Stoke and for me it was a no-brainer to come here.

“The club is in the Premier League, I know a few of the players, I know the manager is very good. I wanted to play in the Premier League again and at a club that really suits me.

“They’re a great bunch of lads, I’ve seen it, and I saw the quality in training on my first day. “People talk about the determination and the team spirit but you need good players as well and I think we’ve got that here.”
