West Ham United are outsiders to sign Stoke City goalkeeper, Jack Butland. They have been priced at 7/1 to sign the Stoke City and England star with online bookmakers, Sky Bet.

West Ham United are currently on the hunt for a new goalkeeper following Joe Hart’s departure back to Manchester City after a very disappointing loan spell at the Hammers. The Englishman shifted a shocking 39 goals in just 19 Premier League appearances as the West Ham United fans quickly turned against him and called for him to be dropped. Now Hart has gone, West Ham only have Adrian who is genuine first team quality. With jack Butland stuck in the Championship at Stoke City, there’s a good chance they could be successful in trying to sign him should they approach him.

Despite ultimately being relegated with Stoke City, Jack Butland still managed to make a respectable six clean sheets in 35 games. He also managed to book his place on the plane to Russia having been one of Stoke City’s only real stand out players in a season worth forgetting for The Potters.

Stoke City may well be a Championship club now but Jack Butland is certainly not a Championship player. Whoever gets their hands on this excellent English talent will have made a real shrewd piece of business. Keep your eyes on this one, it’s going to be a very interesting one.
