- Match Analysis
West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has denied that the club are set to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
Begovic admitted last month that he has been growing increasingly unhappy with the amount of game time he is getting at Stamford Bridge.
The January transfer window came and went, with Begovic still at Chelsea despite interest from Bournemouth.
The Hammers had been linked with Begovic, with a view to making him their first-choice stopper next season.
Bilic has insisted that they re not interested in signing Bosnian Begovic, 29, and that they were happy with the shot-stopping pair of Adrian and Darren Randolph.
“We have been linked with many players in the last three transfer windows, including Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic,” he wrote in the Evening Standard.
“In those three windows, though, I have said a few times that the only position in the team I have absolutely no interest in discussing is the goalkeeping spot.
“I was happy — and I am still happy — with Adrian and Darren Randolph.
“If you ask me whether they will both still be here next season, I would say yes.
“You can never be 100 per cent certain in football, of course, and maybe one of them will knock on the door and say he is unhappy but even if that happens, I will try to persuade them to stay at the club.”
