Peter Crouch hopes it will be a case of him and Saido Berahino rather than one or the other as he bids to recapture the kind of partnership he enjoyed with Jermain Defoe.
Mark Hughes has hinted he might look at using two up front as he tries to get the best out of new boy Berahino and born-again Crouch, who has scored three times in six games since being reinstalled in Stoke's first team.
The 34-year-old striker, who could play his final home game against Swansea on Saturday, is currently assessing his options as the Black Cats prepare for life back in the Sky Bet Championship.
Moyes is hoping he decides to remain on Wearside, with potential suitors already forming an orderly queue.
Crouch has previously proved a handy foil at Spurs and Portsmouth for a Berahino-type forward in Defoe.
