West Brom eye stunning loan swoop

Jack Butland, Birmingham goalkeeperWest Brom manager Steve Clarke is planning a shock loan move for Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Baggies’ first-team plans have been rocked by news that Ben Foster is set to miss three months of the season with a stress fracture in his foot.

This has left Clarke short of cover between the sticks, and with just a few days of the transfer window remaining he is ready to make a late move for Butland.

The England international joined the Potters this summer, but is some way from the first-team with Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorensen thought to be Mark Hughes’ preferred options.

The Midlanders are hopeful that they can take advantage of this by offering the 20-year-old regular playing time – which may appeal to both the club and the player.

Butland is desperate for first-team action, as he looks to stay in England manager Roy Hodgson’s plans for the 2014 World Cup.

The youngster turned down a move to Chelsea earlier this year, with his chances of becoming an established Premier League stopper thought to be greater at the Britannia Stadium.

But, with Begovic – who was expected to leave – having stayed, Butland is currently away from the action.

Does a loan move to West Brom make sense for everybody?
