Asmir Begovic: Continues to be linked with Premier League heavyweights

The Potters shot-stopper has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for some time, with each passing window bringing a fresh round of rumours.

January has come and gone, however, with Begovic still on the books at the Britannia Stadium.

The likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are all reported to be monitoring his situation and a big-money approach could be made in the summer - especially if the Bosnia international impresses at the 2014 World Cup.

Begovic is reading little into the gossip, though, and will continue to give his all for Stoke until a formal approach is made.

He said in The Sun: "It's nice to hear positive things when big names in the game compliment you.

"It gives you extra motivation to do more and work harder every day.

"But I have always been happy at Stoke.

"I am developing and still young. Until something concrete comes up, you just focus on your job."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
