Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has all but confirmed his plans to leave the Potters for greener pastures next summer.
The Bosnian shot-stopper has been linked with a number of England’s top sides over the last year or so and it looks as though the Potters won’t be able to keep hold of him for much longer.
Having already signed an excellent replacement in Jack Butland, Stoke City chiefs look set to sell the 26-year-old to the highest bidder.
And while Begovic is adamant he remains focused on task at hand, the Bosnia international seems to have already set his sights on leaving Britannia Stadium.
“It’s a really massive season. I have to make sure the day-to-day stuff, training and things like that, are sorted out and the rest should hopefully take care of itself.
“I have a good relationship with the chairman and everyone else here. When there is something to discuss, we will sit down.
“It’s always been an honest relationship. He knows my ways and my ambitions and I know where he stands, so there are no secrets between us.
“We’ll see what happens. Of course the World Cup is going to be a global shop window so obviously it would be great to do well there both personally and for Bosnia.
Asmir Begovic has spent most of his professional career in England, playing for Macclesfield Town, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Yeovil Town, Ipswich and Stoke City.
He has developed into one of league top goalkeepers since joining the Potters, and looks set for a big club move in the near future.
