Stoke City will have one last go at persuading Asmir Begovic to sign a new deal at the club.
The Serbian goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of next season and has been tipped to move onto bigger and better things.
However, Potters chief executive Tony Scholes is still hopeful that they can persuade the 27-year-old, who has been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool, to stay at the Britannia Stadium.

“He’s keeping his options open,” Scholes told BBC Radio Stoke. “I don’t know whether or who he might be speaking to. That’s not accusing him of anything. That’s the reality of it.
“He’s away on holiday at the moment but we hope to sit down with him and his representatives again in the near future. It would be nice if we were able to sort something.”
Begovic has made 173 appearances for Stoke since joining from Portsmouth for £3.25m in 2010.
