Asmir Begovic says interest from Manchester United is motivating the Stoke City goalkeeper to improve his performances.

The Potters shot-stopper has been heavily linked with a summer move to the Red Devils after Stoke boss Tony Pulis signed Jack Butland from Birmingham City in the January transfer window.

Begovic has been one of the best performers for Stoke in an otherwise difficult campaign for the Britannia Stadium outfit, keeping 10 clean sheets in 30 appearances.

But although the Serbia international says he is flattered by interest from the Red Devils, the 25-year-old insists is happy at Stoke.

“I’m not under more pressure because United is watching me, I’m glad that they do because that mean I’m doing something good. It gives me more motivation to do better and better,” he told Sport.ba.

“I’m glad that they do because that mean I’m doing something good. It gives me more motivation to do better and better.

“I’m pleased that the big clubs are interested in me, but as I said many times – I’m happy at Stoke City because the gave me a chance do play in Premier League.

“We will see what will happen in the summer. In football you can never know what will happen.”
