Stoke make enquiry for Butland
Stoke have made an enquiry for goalkeeper Jack Butland after he
snubbed the chance to join Chelsea, according to reports.
Reports suggest the 19-year-old is not too keen on a move to
Stamford Bridge because he wants to play regular first-team
And, with Birmingham reportedly looking to offload a number of
players to reduce their wage bill, Stoke boss Tony Pulis could
lodge a bid for Butland before the end of the transfer window.
Butland was a member of England’s Euro 2012 squad last summer
and excelled for the Great Britain team at the Olympics.
Southampton remain the only club to have lodged a firm bid for
Butland, with their ?6m move knocked back last summer.
