SUNDERLAND transfer target Peter Crouch is rumoured to be on his way to Stoke City.

Steve Bruce has repeatedly been linked with a move for the striker but it looks like his future lies away from the Stadium of Light.

Crouch is in his way to the Britannia Stadium for talks over a proposed move reportedly in the region of £8 million.

The beanpole forward has a remarkable scoring record at International level with 22 goals in 42 appearances.

However Crouch has managed only 12 league goals since Harry Redknapp brought him back to White Hart Lane in 2009.

Despite his lack of goals in the Premier League, Crouch is a wanted man. QPR were also linked with a move but it seems that Tony Pulis has stolen a march on his rivals in securing a deal for the England man.

Cameron Jerome is also at Stoke having talks after a medical.
