Bosnian International Responds To Arsenal & Man Utd Move Reports

By on March 7, 2013

Despite the transfer window now being closed there will still be plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Begovic responds to Arsenal and Manchester United links.

Asmir Begovic has responded to reports linking him with a summer move to Arsenal or Manchester United and admits he’s flattered by the interest but insists he’s trying not to take too much notice of the speculation regarding his future, according to Sky Sports.

The Bosnian international has been in superb form since joining Stoke City from Portsmouth in 2010 and has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s most consistent goalkeepers.

Despite his impressive form, Stoke sign Birmingham City stopper Jack Butland in January before loaning him back to the Championship outfit for the rest of the season and Sky Sports suggest the arrival of Butland could see Begovic leave the Britannia in the summer with Arsenal and Manchester United touted as potential destinations.

The 25-year-old has now responded to the reports and while he’s flattered to be linked with a move to the Emirates and Old Trafford, he remains fully focussed on doing his best for Stoke and the Bosnian national team. Begovic is quoted as saying by Sky Sports:

“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.”
