Birmingham City boss Lee Clark accepts he must sell goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark accepts he must sell goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Clark is set to leave out keeper Jack Butland again tonight as the ­cash-strapped Blues face Leeds in their FA Cup third-round replay.

Butland is wanted by Fulham, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester City.

A lucrative home date with Spurs awaits the winner and ESPN have already decided to screen the game, meaning a £200,000 TV windfall.

Clark said: “Could it help in terms of who might stay?

“No. I would have thought if it was a possibility it might have been put to me but it certainly hasn’t been.”
