Birmingham No1 Butland inspired by Man City keeper Hart

Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland admits Manchester City's England No1 Joe Hart is a role model.

Hart has recommended Butland to City chiefs.

And Butland told the Mirror: "Joe is an ­inspiration to me. I want to ­develop in much the same way and, hopefully, do better.

"There will be the point where we become rivals, as well as friends - Joe knows I'm coming for him!"
