£10m Spurs striker's future 'in his own hands'

Tottenham striker Peter Crouch could be on his way to Sunderland in a £10million deal according to

The 30-year-old England international will be allowed to make a decision on his own future, based around his chances of regular first-team football.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp admitted Crouch could leave White Hart Lane before the close of the transfer window, due to increased competition for places in his squad.

Following the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor, Tottenham now boast an array of attacking talent, further adding to what they already have, and Redknapp faces a difficult job at keeping everybody happy.

"There are few clubs that want him [Crouch], but we'll have to wait and see with that one," the Spurs manager told Sky Sports News.


"It's up to Crouchy. I have had Peter at a few clubs and he's a good player, great guy, but I suppose with Adebayor coming in it is an area that we are a little bit overloaded in and he is one that people want.

"If we're going to do something with somebody then it is a possibility."

Sunderland are long-term admirers of Crouch, having attempted to sign him in the January transfer window.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce has been busy in the transfer market this summer having already made eleven signings - including that of talented England U21 international Connor Wickham.

But it is believed Bruce will renew interest in Crouch to try and lure him to the Stadium of Light before the deadline ends tomorrow.
