EX-Saint Peter Crouch is considering retiring from football.

The striker joined Burnley on a short-term deal from Stoke back in January but struggled to make an impact after undergoing appendix surgery in March.

Crouch spent a season at Saints back in 2004, scoring 16 goals from 33 appearances.

Despite his impressive tally, the 38-year-old was unable to help keep the St Mary’s side in the Premier League, as they were relegated at the end of the campaign.

This led to Crouch being snapped up by Liverpool in a £7 million deal on a four-year contract.

The former Saint said: "Everyone I've spoken to who's fit and retired has regretted it, and everyone who has retired has told me to play on as long as I can.

"I don't know. I've had a great time. I know if I chose to play on I could because I feel fit, I train every day and, touch wood, I haven't had many injuries, but do I want to?

"There are other things I could do and I'm quite enjoying as well. I'm going to sit down with the family and probably get told what to do.

"I've been playing every day for 23 years. It's a long time and to wake up one morning and not have it will be hard."
