Stoke City ace set for surprise La Liga switch?

butland.jpgThere are interested faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mirror claim that Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland could well be on his way to La Liga for a season.

The keeper is not too keen on staying at the club this season to play second fiddle to current number one Asmir Begovic who was thought to be leaving the club this summer for shall we say a slightly more high profile side, yet that move has not transpired and now he will keep his place between the posts at the Britannia Stadium.

Butland is of course eyeing a place in the England squad for the 2014 World Cup and his agent Gary Mellor has noted: “When I was in Barcelona a couple of Spanish clubs wanted to talk to me about taking Jack.

“We have to weigh up all possibilities and I have to keep him playing. So if Asmir is still here on September 2, I’m hopeful that Jack isn’t. I don’t see him sitting on the bench at Stoke City.

“Stoke boss Mark Hughes might see that differently and that’s when Stoke and I do have issues. I have to keep Jack playing so his international ambitions are on track and he continues to develop.”

Will Jack Butland really move to the Spanish top flight this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
