Hughes insists Butland is staying


Stoke manager Mark Hughes has made it clear that goalkeeper Jack Butland will not be leaving the club.

Butland has impressed since being promoted to the number one position following Asmir Begovic's move to Chelsea at the start of the season, but his good form has resulted in the 22-year-old being linked with a move away from the Britannia Stadium.

The goalkeeper signed a new four-year deal with the club in March and Hughes has no intention of letting him leave any time soon.

"Jack's going nowhere. He's progressing well but he's very early into his career development as a number one keeper. People are aware of him - and they have been for a long time," Hughes said.

"Jack forced his way into the England squad when he was 19 but he needs a season-in-season-out of week-in-week-out in the Premier League. He's had a great career progression, every step he's taken he's dealt with.

"Now it's about consolidating himself in a very good Premier League team. That's the challenge for him."
