Stoke City are gearing themselves up to make a bid for Blues keeper Jack Butland after making enquiries.

Butland told Chelsea where to stick their offer because he wants first team football, he would get that at Stoke as they look to be selling Azmir Begovic to one of the top clubs.

The speculation is that Stoke would be very unlikely to offer anymore than £3.5million for the young England keeper, which is silly after Blues turned down £6million in the summer when Southampton came sniffing.
