Begovic: It's nice to hear of Liverpool & Manchester United interest

Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic admits it is 'nice' to hear of reported interest in his signature from Liverpool and Manchester United, but insists he remains committed to the Potters.

Begovic has kept more clean sheets than any other 'keeper in the Premier League this season with seven, and this fine form has led to speculation of potential moves from Liverpool and Manchester United.

The Sun claimed last month that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers had identified Begovic as a potential replacement for Pepe Reina, although Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has also been monitoring the Bosnia international.

Begovic, though, is not becoming distracted with rumours of a possible transfer to Anfield or Old Trafford, and is perfectly happy with helping Stoke continue to build under Tony Pulis.

"As far as I know it's all speculation. It's always nice when the biggest teams in the world are looking at you," the 25-year-old said, as reported by ESPN.

"It's a compliment, but it doesn't mean anything. We keep our feet on the ground here and the manager wouldn't let that change.

"I have three-and-a-half years on my contract and I am concentrating on playing and staying in the team and trying to help the team be successful. I am happy here so there are no issues with that."

Begovic joined Stoke from Portsmouth for £3.25 million in the January transfer window of 2010, and has established himself as Pulis' No.1 ahead of veteran 'keeper Thomas Sorensen.
