Stoke boss Mark Hughes: no contact from Real Madrid over Asmir Begovic

Stoke boss Mark Hughes is not surprised Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is being linked with Real Madrid, but has stressed there has been no contact between the clubs and that he is not welcoming interest in him.

I'm not sure where the story originates from, but certainly there has been no contact between the clubs.

But it wouldn't surprise me if there was a modicum of truth in it - that top teams are looking at Asmir - because he is an outstanding goalkeeper.

We are certainly not encouraging it. Asmir is a huge part of what we are trying to do here.

Huth likely to miss rest of season

Stoke defender Robert Huth could be out of action for the rest of the season, according to club chairman Peter Coates.

Huth has not featured for the first team since sustaining a knee injury in November which led to him having surgery.

It is my understanding that it is very unlikely he will feature again this season.

If that is the case, then all the focus now is getting him ready for next season.
