Jack Butland kept Birmingham in with a chance of getting something from the game at Charlton on Saturday and if Stoke manager Tony Pulis saw the game he must be rubbing his hands with delight.

The Potters boss picked up Butland for half the price that was offered for him in the summer when he signed the young talent on deadline day.

Part of the deal was that Butland went back to St Andrews on loan until the end of the season, but now Pulis has said that he could possibly let the keeper go out again next season.

That will start a flurry from a number of clubs who wouldn’t mind him in their side and that would include Clark and Birmingham City.

The Blues boss told the Birmingham Mail: ‘I would like to think we’d be right in amongst it to get that. Obviously he knows the club, he’s thriving on playing.

‘Obviously the other part of it is where Tony wants to send him, there might be another Premier League club, I don’t know.

‘But if that was the possibility we would explore it, we would be foolish not to.’
