Clark Wants Potters Keeper Next Season

Clark Wants Potters Keeper Next Season

Jack Butland kept Birmingham in with a chance of getting something from the game at Charlton on Saturday and if Stoke manager Tony Pulis saw the game he must be rubbing his hands with delight.

The Potters boss picked up Butland for half the price that was offered for him in the summer when he signed the young talent on deadline day.

Part of the deal was that Butland went back to St Andrews on loan until the end of the season, but now Pulis has said that he could possibly let the keeper go out again next season.

That will start a flurry from a number of clubs who wouldn't mind him in their side and that would include Clark and Birmingham City.

The Blues boss told the Birmingham Mail: 'I would like to think we'd be right in amongst it to get that. Obviously he knows the club, he's thriving on playing.

'Obviously the other part of it is where Tony wants to send him, there might be another Premier League club, I don't know.

'But if that was the possibility we would explore it, we would be foolish not to.'

Why do we want Butland next season on loan. We have Doyle or we also buy our own goalkeeper. Butland decided to leave Blues so he should be at Stoke, any way its again want L Clark wants & by next season with a bit of luck we will have new owners & a new manager

we have one other experienced keeper in Colin Doyle who will need to experience first team experience once Blues are safe. We need to give him games.
