English Championship club Stoke City have slapped a big transfer fee on goalkeeper Jack Butland amidst the interest from several Premier League clubs.
Jack Butland has been able to maintain his spot in the England national team despite suffering relegation from the Premier League one year ago and the 26-year-old has requested for the club to let him leave for a Premier League club this summer.
The English shot stopper believes that he’s in danger of losing his place in the Three Lions’ squad if he continues in the second tier of English football.

According to the publication from the stables of the Daily Star, Stoke City are willing to let him leave this summer but they are determined to sell him for the highest transfer fee possible.
It was revealed that the Potters have slapped a £30m asking price on him amidst the interest from English top flight clubs like Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.
The Gunners might need a new goalkeeper ahead of next season following the retirement of second choice shot stopper Petr Cech.
The retired Czech Republic goalkeeper will leave Arsenal at the end of his contract this summer.
Bournemouth are also in the market for a new goalkeeper and Jack Butland would definitely be an option for the Cherries.
