Injury setback for Butland


Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland has suffered another setback in his recovery from an ankle injury.

Butland fractured his ankle while playing for England against Germany in March and missed the rest of the season. He had been on course to make his return at the start of the new campaign only to suffer another setback in training.

Rather than risk aggravating it further, the 23-year-old will undergo surgery to resolve the issue.

"A little update on the injury! I'll be having a minor operation on Monday to resolve my current ankle issue!" Butland posted on his Twitter account.

"Rather than push through and risk damaging further, I'd like to have it sorted for good and be back to the levels I was at last year!

"I'm as positive as always and will do everything to be back as soon as possible! Thank you for all your support, JB!"

Shay Given has deputised for Butland during the first few weeks of the season and he is likely to continue in goal for the coming weeks.
