Stoke City has been dealt a major blow after scans revealed goalkeeper Jack Butland has sustained a fractured ankle during the international break.
While the exact timeframe is not known, the injury is expected to keep Butland out for the remainder of the season while his place in the England team for this summer's EURO 2016 is also in peril with the keeper unlikely to be fit in time to make Roy Hodgson's squad, which will be announced May 11. Butland suffered the injury just before the end of the first half in a 3-2 friendly win against Germany on Saturday and needed to be taken off on a stretcher. Without Butland, the Potters will likely opt for Jakob Haugaard, who has backed up Butland in every game since Week 11. Mar 28 - 6:48 AM

Jack Butland’s hopes of playing in this summer’s European Championships hang in the balance after the Stoke goalkeeper was stretchered off in Berlin.

Butland appeared to injure his right ankle moments before Toni Kroos put Germany 1-0 up and the 23-year-old looked distraught as he was helped from the field. Butland has been outstanding for Stoke this season but could have played his last game of 2015/16 – and with it ended his chances of playing in France this summer - if further tests reveal he has damaged ankle ligaments. Stoke will be sweating on the fitness of Butland with Shay Given sidelined following his second knee operation of the season - the injury leaves summer signing Jakob Haugaard as the only fully fit first team goalkeeper.

Jack Butland had less to do than his opposite number but came up big when called on in Stoke City's nil-nil draw with Arsenal.

Butland made an excellent save on Olivier Giroud who had been put in by an incisive Joel Campbell pass. He later saved well on an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drive from the top of the box. The Potters were generally well organized in front of Butland and deserved their point against the league leaders.

Jack Butland was heroic yet again for Stoke City, stopping a flurry of shots from West Ham United as the two sides played to a 0-0 final.

Make that seven clean sheets for Butland in his last nine league games, including such opponents as Manchester City, Chelsea and Southampton. Today, he racked up eight saves in the FPL game, though some match reports have him with as many as ten saves. The Stoke attack, which looked to have taken a positive step forward last week, reverted back to struggling again, with the absence of Xherdan Shaqiri perhaps a major reason why. Still, the Potters are grabbing points with stellar defending and it shouldn't be long before Butland overtakes Joe Hart for the England #1 shirt. He is a fantasy goldmine these days.

Jack Butland put on a goalkeeping clinic today, making several quality saves to help Stoke City earn a road point against Newcastle United in a 0-0 final.

The Potters have to be given credit for their decision to sell Asmir Begovic and role with the young Butland as their new #1 this season. While Begovic is playing for the most disappointing title defenders in PL history, Butland has blossomed into a magnificent shot-stopper and he had three today that not may other PL keepers could have equaled. Jon Walters had the only significant chance for Stoke's attack and was denied, so it was the heroics of Butland alone that deserves credit for coming away with a point. One has to think he is on course to be the #1 for England in World Cup 2018.

Stoke City may have lost 2-0 and been dominated in the process but they don't have Jack Butland to blame as he made a string of fine saves to keep Mark Hughes' side close.

While Stoke City's previous number one was losing 3-1 for his new team Chelsea, the Potters' new first stringer looked every bit the part as he made ten saves including a few exceptional ones. Butland couldn't hold back the tide though and with Arsenal dominating possession 68% to 32% and shots on target 12 to 4 the goalkeeper will have to content himself with an excellent personal performance as his outfield teammates continue to try to return to health.

Jack Butland got a third consecutive start and made it two clean sheets in a row and in his three matches overall as Stoke City picked up a nil-nil draw at Turf Moor.

Butland is certainly making a solid case that Stoke City can cash in on Asmir Begovic and still feel good about their goalkeeping situation next season. Butland made a number of saves from Danny Ings shots as well as a strong volley from Danny Jones. The draw saw Stoke City achieve their highest ever point total in the Premier League with another week still to play. Things are looking pretty solid at the Britannia heading into the summer.

Asmir Begovic is back in contention after two weeks out injured and Mark Hughes has been vague about his intentions in goal for Week 37.

All other things being equal, you'd expect Asmir Begovic to return to his starting job now that he's healthy and available again. Two things confound the notion that this is what will certainly happen. First, it's the end of the season and Stoke City don't really have anything significant to play for. Second, Begovic may be headed elsewhere this summer and understanding what they have in Butland may be more important than having the better, more experienced goalkeeper in net on Saturday. If you have to decide on your fantasy squad before line-ups are announced then it's probably best to avoid either Stoke City keeper even with goal-shy Burnley the opposition.

Jack Butland didn't have a great outing in his first start last weekend but he and Stoke City turned it up and beat Spurs 3-0 with Butland notching five saves in the effort.

Jack Butland has started two matches this season and they couldn't have gone any more differently for either he or Stoke City. After a fairly limp loss to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Butland rebounded with five saves and his teammates scored three to topple stumbling Spurs at the Britannia. It may be a preview of things to come as there are persistent rumors that Asmir Begovic will leave the Potteries this summer leaving Butland as the potential starter in goal for 2015-16.

Jack Butland will start for Stoke City in Week 36 after Asmir Begovic underwent a "minor procedure".

Mark Hughes said that it was always his intention to give Butland a couple of starts late in the season to see what he has with Begovic possibly off after the season. With Begovic having a minor procedure, the opportunity was clear to do just that without worry that Begovic might take offense and be that much more inclined to leave in the summer. Spurs have been a bit goalshy in recent weeks but Stoke City haven't been great either so Butland should only be an option if you're in a desperate situation.

Jack Butland, Stoke City's young, promising keeper, will go to Leeds United on loan as Paddy Kenny is injured.

Butland started for Stoke when both Asmir Begovic and Thomas Sorenson were unavailable. He's still one for the future, so with both veterans healthy, the more game time Butland can get the better.

Jack Butland has been hailed as a potential future star in the Premier League but his first taste of league action has been rough as he lost for the second consecutive week.

Stoke's current form has done Butland no favors as he has been pelted with shots. Against Liverpool last weekend it wasn't shocking but that Crystal Palace could get opportunities is as damning of the Stoke defense as it is of the keeper. After six goals against and two losses in two matches, Butland's confidence will no doubt be tested.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland will start for Stoke City again as they travel to Crystal Palace.

With both Asmir Begovic and Tomas Sorensen hurt, the promising Butland has a chance to stake his claim as a Premier League caliber keeper. Stoke have been rough on their travels, and a revitalized Crystal Palace under Stoke's former manager, Tony Pulis, will be a test for them.
