Asmir Begovic: Sees his immediate future at Stoke

Despite Manchester United and Liverpool reportedly being interested in the Bosnian goalkeeper, he insists that his immediate future lies at the Britannia Stadium.

"I am happy to be here and I am happy to stay here. I am looking forward to reporting back in pre-season, meeting the new manager and staff and cracking on with the new season," he told the Stoke Sentinel.

"The most important thing is I am at a club where I am settled and I feel comfortable. Everyone has been really good to me and the chairman has been fantastic so I can't really complain."

And Begovic believes that he faces a tough challenge to keep his place in the Stoke side after the arrival of Jack Butland and the continued presence of Thomas Sorenson.

"Jack is a good up and coming keeper and everyone knows about Thomas and the qualities he has," he added.

"We have a strong group of goalkeepers and I am looking forward to being part of it."
