Stoke City determined to resist any January offers for Jack Butland

Stoke City have been rather impressive over the past month or so as they continue to ensure consistency under Gary Rowett.

The Potters will have their sights set on securing a play-off place in the current campaign, with the opportunity to strengthen in the January transfer window.

However, it appears as if Gary Rowett is desperate to hold onto one of his star players, as according to The Telegraph, Stoke City are ready to resist any offers for Jack Butland in January.

Stoke are ready to resist any January offers for Jack Butland as they bid for a Premier League return.

Indeed, the 25-year-old is likely to be a target for top-flight clubs when the transfer window opens having established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in England this season.

However, it’s understood that the Potters are determined to keep Butland this season and will only consider bids over £50 million to review their stance.

THE VERDICT:

Jack Butland deserves to be playing in the Premier League having put in a number of world-class performances in the Championship this season.

However, with the Potters pulling out all the stops to keep him in January, it remains to be seen as to whether any Premier League clubs will want to splash the cash on him.

Stoke City will no doubt struggle to secure a play-off spot if he departs in January, so this is a crucial period for Gary Rowett.
