Asmir Begovic expects Stoke City stay

Asmir Begovic insists that he expects to remain at Stoke City,despite rumoured interest from Real Madrid.

Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has said that he expects to remain at the club, despite speculation linking him with Real Madrid.

The 27-year-old, who featured for Bosnia-Herzegovina at the World Cup in Brazil, is reportedly a target of Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.

However, Begovic has insisted that he is focused on Stoke's preparations for the new season.

"As far as I'm concerned I will [start the season at Stoke]," he told talkSPORT.

"I've obviously just got home from Brazil. My first thoughts are to rest and recuperate and get myself ready for pre-season, which for me starts in three weeks.

"As far as I'm concerned this is where I'll be, this is where I see my future and I'm excited about training in a couple of weeks or so."

Begovic joined Stoke from Portsmouth in 2010.
