Stoke City have slashed their asking price for England goalkeeper Jack Butland - with the Championship club now prepared to accept a third of the price they wanted 18 months ago.

After Butland travelled with England to the 2018 World Cup, Stoke would not have entertained any offer less than £30m for him, but in the current climate, it's thought Stoke would be prepared to consider a much smaller deal of around £8-10m.

A key factor is that Butland has only a year left on his current Stoke contract, and he won't sign a new one. The possibility of him walking away for nothing next summer has drastically reduced his transfer value.

Sky Sports News has contacted Butland's agent, Paul Stretford, who told us: "Talks have been ongoing with Stoke City for the past two years since Jack made it clear his preference was not to extend his existing contract.
