Begovic moved to Stamford Bridge from Stoke City in 2015 but made just 33 appearances and played second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois.

The 29-year-old spent seven years at Pompey and went through the club’s Academy.

Begovic made 23 first-team appearances for the Blues before switching to the Potters in February 2010 for £3.25m.
