Stoke striker Peter Crouch is relishing the prospect of working with new boss Mark Hughes - but has not ruled out the prospect of a summer move away from the Britannia Stadium.

Hughes was named as Tony Pulis' successor at the Potters' helm last month, and his appointment has left Crouch keen to get started ahead of the 2013-14 season.

Speaking to Absolute Radio at Hard Rock Calling, the 32-year-old said: "I've never really had a lot of contact with Mark Hughes, but I'm really looking forward to it. Mark was an awesome player and I remember watching him at Chelsea. I'm really looking forward to working with him."

The former England international is committed to Stoke until 2015, but admits a summer transfer is not beyond the realms of possibility.

"I've got two years on my contract, but you never know," he added.

"With my history, you just don't know."
