Norwich City are being linked with a move for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland.

The 26-year-old has fallen out-of-favour with the Potters and could be moved onto pastures new in the January transfer window, as per a report by Stoke On Trent Live.

He has been continuously linked with a move back to the top flight since Stoke’s relegation to the Championship in 2018.

Butland, who has eight caps for England so far in his career and was at the last World Cup in Russia, has played for Stoke since 2013 and has played 141 times for them.

He started his career at Birmingham City and broke into their first-team in the 2012/13 season after impressing them on loan at Cheltenham Town.

Stoke then paid around £3.5 million to lure him to the Premier League. He then had loan stints at Birmingham, Barnsley, Leeds United and Derby County before establishing himself as Stoke’s first choice ‘keeper.

He has found himself down the pecking order recently with Potters’ boss Nathan Jones deciding to opt for the experienced Adam Federeci instead.

Norwich currently have Tim Krul and Schalke loanee Ralf Fahrmann as their goalkeeping options, however, Daniel Farke may be keen on bolstering this department by luring Butland to Carrow Road this winter.

Butland’s career at Stoke has gone stale so a move away in January could suit both parties.
