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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
