West Ham United: Fans not keen on signing Jack Butland in January transfer window

West Ham United: Fans not keen on signing Jack Butland in January transfer window - West Ham

West Ham United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Jack Butland, with Stoke City reportedly asking for £20 million for the goalkeeper (via Daily Mail).

Is Jack Butland worth £20m?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Hammers are likely to be in the market for a new goalkeeper in January having had problems between the sticks this season.

Whilst Lukasz Fabianski is a dependable number one, his injury meant that Roberto Jimenez had to play for a while and he didn’t do well, shipping 14 goals in just six starts (Transfermarkt).

Third choice David Martin has come in for Roberto recently and done better, keeping two clean sheets in four (Transfermarkt).

However, it is thought that the club will look for another goalkeeper in the transfer window and the Daily Mail suggests that they had been considering trying to get Butland in on loan.

But it seems that Stoke are unlikely to sanction such a deal, instead demanding £20 million for the 26-year-old.

The England international hasn’t been in great form this season, indeed he has kept just three clean sheets in 15 starts and has made three errors which have led to goals (SofaScore).

Plenty of West Ham fans have urged the club not to spend big money on Butland, suggesting that he is not worth it.
