If Stoke City’s Jack Butland is available for cut-down price then Leeds United should pounce

The 25-year-old is set to be a wanted man this summer as club’s start to learn of his availability.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland could leave the Championship club this summer for just £15 million, according to The Sun.

The England custodian has stayed loyal to the Potters despite their relegation to the Championship.

The report suggests that Butland would have to take a considerable wage drop were he to stay at the Bet365 Stadium beyond this season.

Crystal Palace are extremely keen on the stopper, as per the article, but his availability for such a small fee is bound to alert other clubs.

One of those interested parties should be Leeds United.

The Whites could find themselves in the Premier League next season and that will call for a better quality of player.

Butland knows all about the principals of playing for Leeds having spent time on loan during the 2013/14 campaign.

 

Marcelo Bielsa added Kiko Casilla to his ranks in January and he is currently in possession of the gloves.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell kept goal for the first half of the season but looks some way off being Premier League quality just yet.

At £15 million, Butland would represent a real bargain for any club.

He commands his box with aplomb, his distribution is among the best in the country and he makes very few, if any, silly mistakes.

If Leeds want to make a fist of being competitive in the top flight they will need players to arrive and hit the ground running.

Butland would be more than capable of doing just that.
