Asmir Begovic: Linked with Stoke exit

Asmir Begovic: Linked with Stoke exit

The Bosnian goalkeeper was strongly linked with a move up the Premier League food chain in January, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United said to be monitoring his situation.

Begovic ended up seeing out the January transfer window at the Britannia Stadium, but Stoke did move to secure the services of England international Jack Butland on deadline day.

That would suggest that they are planning for life after Beogvic, with a summer move widely touted.

The highly-rated 25-year-old is paying little attention to the gossip, though, with it important for him to end the 2012/13 campaign as positively as possible.

Begovic told SportSport: "I must confess it is nice to hear these things. It is always nice to hear what others are saying, it means that you are doing a good job.

"But I have no time to think about this. My only concern is Stoke City as I want to be as good as I can be for my club, and for my national team.

"So quite simply, I really don't have any time to think about a move or anything else."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
