The goalkeeper, who has been linked with an exit from the club, let in two shockers in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Preston.

"We are travelling on the bus and there's a big story about Jack being left out of the England squad, it's all unsettling," he told Sky Sports.

"Maybe I need to put him out of the firing line and wait until the window shuts to get his head focused because all the stories are about what's not happening to Jack rather than him being Stoke City goalkeeper."

The former Stoke City and West Brom striker scored in his opening games against Genk and Charleroi.

Dury told talkSPORT: I like the boy he is doing very well. Berahino is an excellent football player and intelligent.

He comes on time, he takes his breakfast and lunch with the boys.

"He even has a special programme where he watches the opponent we play in our next match and he knows a lot of information about the other team. This for me is a real professional.

I have got nothing to say about the past. The past is the past. I have a project with the boy in the future it is not about the past.

"I am working now with a player who is happy and I am happy with him. I love the boy. The boy is accepted by all the players.

"Now I am looking forward. This weekend he was in the team of the week, he has scored two goals already so you are listening to a happy coach.

"For the moment, I have the model professional."

The striker, who has failed to make a lasting impression at Villa Park since his 12m switch from Brentford in 2017, joined Stoke on deadline day in a deal lasting until the end of the season.

He scored his first goal for his new side this weekend, bagging Stoke's second in their 2-2 draw against Derby County.

Hogan told StokeonTrentLive: Yes, hopefully, if all fits. I was happy to come here, fitted in well and know a lot of the lads from the national team as well.

It all depends on having a good season, but that's what I plan on doing.

I've got a lot of people to prove wrong. I've been written off by a lot of people who don't think I'm this and don't think I'm that, that I'm a waste of money and all this.

They can say what they want. That's what is driving me to do well and I've got a manager who believes in me.

He is a great guy, a great manager and there are great lads here who want me to do well. It's up to me."

Max Eberl, director of sport at Xhaka's former club Borussia Monchengladbach, claims the Swiss midfielder was close to a Potters loan move after a disastrous start to life at the German club.

Eberl told the Rheinische Post: Granit's career in the first 18 months at Gladbach did not run [as smoothly] as sliced bread.

He was almost ready to be loaned to Stoke and I told him, 'If you go to Stoke now, you'll never end up at a big club but you could'."

Xhaka is embarking on his fourth season at Arsenal, and has scored 11 times in 135 appearances.

He is now Unai Emery's captain at the Emirates, as well as skipper of the Switzerland national team.

Butland is concerned about the prospect of being in the England squad given he plays in the Championship with Stoke.

He was hoping for a Premier League move this summer but nothing materialised.

The Daily Mail says he is hoping that he can secure a move to a club abroad before September 2.

The European transfer window is still open, giving Butland some hope that a club can come close to the fee Stoke want for his signature.

<![CDATA[DONE DEAL: Ex-Stoke striker Saido Berahino signs with Zulte Waregem]]> <p>Released Stoke City striker Saido Berahino has signed with Zulte Waregem.</p><p>The 26-year-old striker has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/done-deal-ex-stoke-striker-saido-berahino-signs-with-zulte-waregem-4292373?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BStoke%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Released Stoke City striker Saido Berahino has signed with Zulte Waregem.

The 26-year-old striker has put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.

Berahino had a training spell with Zulte last week and was convinced to sign a permanent deal with the club after having several conversations with the manager Francky Dury.

The deal comes after tests in France with Nimes.

He said, "Until two months ago, I hadn't thought I'd end up in Belgium, let alone Zulte Waregem.

"In the past month I have regained my confidence and regained my pleasure in football. I'm looking forward to discovering this new competition and giving the best of myself.

"I am aware that if you have played in the Premier League there are expectations. It is up to me to perform on the field every day and make my team-mates, trainers and the fans happy. If we get everyone behind us, we can achieve something good."

<![CDATA[Ex-Liverpool defender Johnson slaughters Berahino: Not up to it; never tried]]> <p>Former England defender Glen Johnson has slaughtered former Stoke City teammate Saido Berahino on radio today.</p><p>Johnson played with Berahino for the Potters between 2017 and 2018 before the former Liverpool defender retired.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/ex-liverpool-defender-johnson-slaughters-berahino-not-up-to-it-never-tried-4292128?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BStoke%2BCity'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Former England defender Glen Johnson has slaughtered former Stoke City teammate Saido Berahino on radio today.

Johnson played with Berahino for the Potters between 2017 and 2018 before the former Liverpool defender retired.

Now Johnson, formerly of Chelsea and Liverpool, has revealed what Berahino, who was released from his contract on Wednesday by Stoke, was like to play with on a day-to-day basis.

Johnson told talkSPORT: "To be honest it's not so much what's gone wrong, it's quicker to say what's gone right. He had the wrong mentality and the wrong attitude from day one.

"I only know him from the days at Stoke, his days at West Brom, he had a few good months he was hitting the net regularly.

"For whatever reason when he was at Stoke he was always going against the grain. If we were told to be there [at training] at 10, he would turn up at 10 past 10.

"If we were told to wear this, he would deliberately wear something different. It was almost like he had a vendetta against them from the start.

"It was strange to watch really. In training you would see glimpses that he can play. There is something there but he didn't even want to push himself.

"If they wanted us to run faster he would go slower. I am not exaggerating, it would be the same every single day.

"If you were not in the squad, you would have to run after the game. Of course, no player likes doing it because they are angry you weren't playing in the first place.

"You might be running at half 10 at night on an evening or whatever. I understood why players were unhappy about it but that was the rules, but Saido would jog.

"We would supposed to be off on the following Sunday but because Saido didn't run everyone had to come in the next day, even the players that played the game.

"The next day, Saido called in sick. We were only there because of him and he didn't even turn up.

"It was uproar. Where do you go from that? It's total disrespect to the staff, the players.

"And that's what he was like on a daily basis. And considering they paid him with three years left to go tells you everything you know."

Asked if he liked Berahino as a person, Johnson said: "No. I will be brutally honest. I've played with people who might not be up to the level but they are nice and will work hard.

"He wasn't at the level and he didn't try. It's not happened once has it, it's happened throughout the career.

"He's 26, he should be having a big move right now. He's not played for England. There are reasons for it.

"Everyone pretty much says the same thing. If I was the manager or owner of a club I wouldn't take him if they paid me to play him."
