Butland to be allowed to leave on loan

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes will grant Jack Butland a loan move to keep his chances of making Roy Hodgson’s World Cup Squad alive, the Mail Online understands.

The 20 year old made his Potters debut on New Year’s Day in the 1-1 draw with Everton, and also turned out in the league defeats to Liverpool and Crystal Palace, and FA Cup third round victory over Leicester City.

However, with first-choice goalkeeper Asmir Begovic returning to fitness, the former Birmingham City man is set to once again see his opportunities limited.

Butland has just one full international cap so far, though he has regularly been named in England’s squads as back up to Joe Hart.

He spent the majority of the first half of the season with Championship strugglers Barnsley, and will be allowed to leave the Britannia Stadium temporarily should an offer deemed suitable by his manager come along.
