Asmir Begovic has confirmed he is on his way to Liverpool this summer and says he hopes the transfer will be completed in the next few weeks.
The Stoke goalkeeper appeared to be close to sealing a switch to Anfield earlier this week, but the move seemingly hit the buffers over a fee.
However, in an interview with the Bosnian media Begovic has confirmed he expects to be a Liverpool player by the time they return for pre-season in early June.
'I'll start preparing on July 10, with all the players of Liverpool,' he said.
It is thought that negotiations are at an advanced stage, with the 25-year-old ready to sign a four-year deal to act as competition to first-choice goalkeeper Pepe Reina.
Stoke had previously slapped a £15million valuation on Begovic, but are believed to be willing to accept something in the region of £6million.
The Potters, who have already replaced the former Portsmouth man with England international Jack Butland, are also believed to be keen on Twente youngster Timo Plattel.
