ONE of the most highly-rated stoppers in English football, Jack Butland has established himself as the Potters undisputed number one in recent years.
A regular member of Gareth Southgate’s England squad, the stopper was part of the Three Lions’ group which reached the Semi-Final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Capped nine times at international level, the talented ace has also made almost 200 appearances domestically, with almost half of them coming during his time in North Staffordshire.
Despite the Club’s relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2017/18 season, the 25-year-old opted to remain loyal to the Potters despite top-flight interest in his services.
The former Birmingham City ace is expected to play a major role in the Potteries this term, as the side plots a return back to the highest-level of English football.
