Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has shrugged off talk of a January move to Manchester City.

It is understood Begovic, 26, is rated highly at the Etihad and former boss Roberto Mancini was also keen on signing him.

But Begovic said: "I don't pay too much heed. All I worry about is working hard here.

"I am settled here and I am enjoying the work I am doing on a daily basis.

"I have a huge amount of faith in what the manager is looking to achieve here."
