Spurs' London club striker switch remains 'unlikely'

Queen's Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock admits he would love to do a deal for Tottenham Hotspur striker Peter Crouch, but is realistic enough to know that the England international's wages means a move is highly unlikely.

The 30-year-old beanpole front man spent a solitary season at Loftus Road back in 2000, and as such holds an affection for the club who are preparing to embark on their first campaign in the top-flight for fifteen years.

"I've got a lot of affection for the club, and loved playing down there when I was young," said Crouch. "I certainly wouldn't rule out ever playing for QPR again.

"They deserved to win the Championship but with the level in the [Barclays] Premier League they will have to buy a few players and hope some of those players who got them up adapt quickly."

As Spurs boss Harry Redknapp looks to make his own money available for summer transfers, Crouch has been earmarked as a player who could leave White Hart Lane this summer.


Stoke City have also been credited with an interest in the 6ft 7in striker, but Warnock revealed QPR would not be coming in with a rival bid.

"If Crouchy wants to fit into the QPR wage structure, I'd welcome with open arms," he told the Fulham Chronicle. "But something tells me that isn't going to happen."

Tottenham are said to be looking for a new striker themselves, and have been heavily linked with a move for want-away Manchester City star Emmanuel Adebayor.

But with the two clubs poles apart in their valuation for the player, a move to White Hart Lane at this stage is far from concrete.
