Liverpool target Jack Butland denies asking to leave Stoke City

Stoke are now struggling after a poor league season.

England goalkeeper Jack Butland has denied he has asked to leave Premier League strugglers Stoke.

The Potters swooped to land Butland from Birmingham City back in 2013, and whilst he started out as Asmir Begovic's backup, he has emerged as a top Premier League goalkeeper.

The 24-year-old keeper used his personal Twitter account to reply to a comment suggesting that he is trying to force a move away from Stoke.

'Before this spreads any further, I haven't told the club I want to leave, I'm focused on doing everything I can to keep the club in this division!' Butland posted on Tuesday.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is said to like the England man, while Arsenal may opt to draft in a long-term replacement for Petr Cech, who is 35.

Chelsea could be losing Thibaut Courtois to European champions Real Madrid in the summer with the Belgian close to reuniting with his family in Spain next season.

Both Arsenal and Livepool have been linked with a £40m ($56m) summer move for Butland, who is in contention to be England's first-choice stopper at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

There remains major doubt over the Anfield futures of both Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet. And one impressive tournament on the grandest stage of all could light up Butland's career moving forward.
