He was released to Queen's Park Rangers FC on 28 July 2000 for £60,000, and after 42 league appearances, in which he scored ten goals, he signed for Portsmouth FC on 11 July 2001 for £1,250,000, where another 37 league appearances followed and another eighteen goals, then onto Aston Villa FC, less than a year later for £4 million+, on 28 March 2002. Crouch spent time on loan to Norwich City FC on 8 September 2003, he scored four goals in fifteen league appearances. After 37 Premiership Villa appearances, and six goals, he returned to the south coast to join Southampton FC on 8 June 2004 for £2 million, scoring twelve in 27 Premiership outings. Following his full international debut, Crouch joined Liverpool FC for £7 million on 20 July 2005. He appeared 85 times in the Premiership, with a return of 22 goals. Rejoined Portsmouth FC on 11 July 2008 for a fee worth up to £11 million. After another 38 Premiership appearances and eleven goals, Crouch rejoined his first club, Tottenham Hotspur FC on 27 July 2009 - for a fee in the region of £10 million.  After struggling to hold down a regular first team slot, scoring twelve in 72 Premiership appearances, Crouch joined Stoke City AFC on transfer deadline day, 31 August 2011. He has scored 25 goals in 100 league appearances up until 2013-14.
