Butland open to Stoke loan exit

Jack Butland will consider leaving Stoke on loan in an effort to confirm his place in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

Butland was in the Stoke side in January due to Asmir Begovic’s injury but with Begovic fit again and restored to Mark Hughes’ XI, Butland has revealed he would be willing to leave the Britannia Stadium on a temporary basis to catch Hodgson’s eye.


“Now that the transfer window is closed a loan move to the Premier League is not on the cards, so I'll either see what happens at Stoke or assess my options in the Championship,” Butland said.


“If I'm not playing, there is no way I can be chosen for any squad. I need to be playing in order to give myself a chance of going (to Brazil).


“I'm always confident in my ability; you have to be as a goalkeeper. If I'm playing well, I have a chance.


“All I can focus on is playing as many games as I can at the highest level. If that leads me to the World Cup, then brilliant. It's certainly a target of mine.”


The 21-year-old moved to Stoke from Birmingham City in January 2013 but was loaned back to the Blues for the remainder of last season.


He joined up with Stoke at the start of the current campaign but joined Barnsley on loan, staying at Oakwell until January, making 13 appearances for the Championship side.
