Stoke looking to keep Begovic

Stoke City owner Peter Coates does not want to sell Asmir Begovic but would not stand in the goalkeeper's way if a 'top club' offers the right amount of money.

The £15million-rated Bosnia and Herzegovina international has been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea over recent months after a fantastic season.

But while Coates admits he would not deny Begovic a dream move, Stoke, who appointed Mark Hughes as their new manager on Thursday, would not be prepared to sell on the cheap if at all.

"Asmir is a super professional player," Coates told Sky Sports. "We like him very much. He is a top, top goalkeeper. I think he is as good as anybody in the Premier League.

"But he is also ambitious. If top clubs come for your players, I do not think you can deny them the opportunity. That is my view.

"But it would depend very much on the money being right. We are not looking to sell him. We are not expecting to sell him. We expect him to be our goalkeeper next season."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
