Stoke are close to agreeing a new three-year deal with manager Mark Hughes and once the Welshman puts pen to paper on the new contract, the Potters will be looking to tie down a host of key players .
?Notably, the likes of goalkeeper Begovic, forward Walters and midfielder N'Zonzi all have only one year remaining on their current deals in Staffordshire and the club are desperate to re-sign the trio.
?It is also believed that Stoke are also looking at the possibility of completing the permanent signings of on-loan duo Victor Moses (Chelsea) and Philipp Wollscheid (Bayer Leverkusen) at the end of the current campaign.?
