Jack Butland has denied reports that he’s told Stoke he wants to leave this summer, amid interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.

The England international is expected to be part of England’s World Cup squad, but is enduring life at the wrong end of the Premier League table with the Potters this season.

Stoke are currently lodged in the relegation zone, with just 11 matches to go, and Butland was reported to have told club chiefs that he was desperate to move on in the summer.
