Stoke City boss Tony Pulis isn't surprised Asmir Begovic is wanted by many top four clubs.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked with the £15million-rated star this season.

And Stoke boss Pulis believes the Bosnian, 25, has been exceptional - despite Stoke's recent slump.

Begovic has another chance to impress Alex Ferguson tomorrow when Stoke host United.

Pulis said: "It doesn't surprise me that there are links with the top clubs.

"It's been a great season for him. He can only get better and better."
