Peter Crouch: 'Stoke City ready to kick on this season'

Stoke City striker Peter Crouch believes that his side's ability to now attract "top quality signings" highlights their improvement over his four years at the club.

Peter Crouch has said that he believes Stoke City will continue to improve under Mark Hughes this coming season.

The Potters have recorded back-to-back ninth-place finishes in the Premier League.

Having already brought in the likes of Glen Johnson, Marco van Ginkel and winger Moha El Ouriachi from Barcelona, Crouch is confident that Stoke will push on once more over the next 10 months.

Speaking to reporters on the club's pre-season tour of Singapore, the Englishman said: "We are now attracting top quality signings and top quality players.

"I have just finished my fourth season at Stoke City and the difference in the calibre of players, the confidence and the size of the squad has improved no end. Each season it seems to improve and this one will be no different."

Stoke face Liverpool in their opening Premier League game of the 2015-16 campaign on August 8.
