The 24-year-old is widely tipped to be part of a big-money goalkeeping merry-go-round this summer.

Manchester United could lose David De Gea while Liverpool, Manchester City and Everton could all be in the market for a top-class stopper.

Butland is only just back after 12 months out with a broken ankle and Stoke boss Mark Hughes thinks he’s better off staying put.

Hughes said: “Jack knows what he’s got here. He’s an established keeper at a good Premier League club and has featured for England.

“It’s sometimes said that at Stoke you can’t get international recognition, but that’s not the case with Jack.

“He’s made the full England squad and is well thought of within that group, so it shows what you can attain here.”
