EPL: Chris Wood's Burnley sign former England international Peter Crouch

All Whites forward Chris Wood has a new strike - and dance - partner at Burnley, with the signing of former England international Peter Crouch.

The 38-year-old Crouch joins the Clarets on a deal until the end of the season, arriving from second-division Stoke City.

In return, Burnley send Sam Vokes the other way to the Potters.

The Englishman is well known in football for his lanky 2.01m frame and his famous robot-dance celebration.

Burney confirmed the signing with a viral video of a robot walking into the Burnley office, before being taken out by a football kicked by Crouch.

The two-time World Cup representative has played 462 top-flight appearances for six different clubs, scoring 108 goals.

Crouch said he was hungry to add to his tally, as he targets playing until he is 40.

"I still want to achieve things," Crouch told Burnley's website. "I want to get more games in the Premier League and I would love to add to the 100 Premier League goals.

"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 feel like the older I get, the more hungry I get. 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 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."
