Stoke striker Peter Crouch has shrugged off speculation surrounding his future, confirming his desire to stay at the club.
Crouch, 32, has been linked with a return to Championship side QPR, who are managed by former Tottenham and West Ham manager Harry Redknapp.
Redknapp has worked with Crouch at numerous points during their respective careers and is thought to be keen to bring the forward back for a second spell at Loftus Road.
However, Crouch is in no rush to leave the Britannia Stadium.
“I am happy here,” Crouch told The Sentinel.
“I have had a few moves in my career and had lots of different clubs, so there’s always been speculation pretty much every year.
“As long as I know the manager is happy and I am happy, I don’t think there is anything to be done. I haven’t been seeking a move or thought about one.
“But if the manager thought it best and something came up that’s best for the club, that’s up to them.
“I can only speak for myself and I am more than happy at the club and the family is settled here as well.”
Crouch has scored 22 goals for Stoke since signing from Tottenham in 2011 and believes the club has a bright future under new manager Mark Hughes.
“I think there will be a big improvement and hopefully we will push on and challenge the top 10. And if we can achieve that, it’s something to build on from there,” he added.
“I genuinely believe in the future of this club. When I came, I thought it would be the start of something big and I do think there’s more to achieve here.”
