Peter Crouch Leads The Stoke Players' Tributes As Jon Walters Says Goodbye

Peter Crouch Leads The Stoke Players' Tributes As Jon Walters Says Goodbye

It's going to be a strange feeling the first time we see Jon Walters in the claret and blue of Burnley, as he has been one of the ever-presents as Stoke solidified their Premier League status over the past decade.

Walters leaves the club having bagged 62 goals in 269 appearances and he became a hero of the fans along the way for his honesty of effort in the shirt.

Thankfully he will be staying in the Premier League, and Burnley were willing to offer him more long-term security than Stoke, so it's a move that benefits him and one which no Potters fan would begrudge him after all he has given to the club.

Big Jon took to Twitter on Saturday to say goodbyes... And to offer Burnley fans a sign of what is to come:

The responses to that tweet speak volumes about Jon Waters as a pro.

Peter Crouch opted the for the teary-eyed emoji as he is losing someone he has spent a lot of time playing alongside.

How about that picture choice from Xherdan Shaqiri though? Adorable.

In typical fashion, Shay Given was only interested in taking the piss..

It's clear that he made a big impact during his time in Stoke, and it's fantastic to see the reaction of his fellow professionals now that it's time to move on.

We wish him all the best at Burnley.
