Chelsea not giving up on reluctant Butland

Chelsea hope to convince Jack Butland to make the move from Birmingham City.

The Daily Star says Birmingham yesterday gave Butland the green light to travel south - possibly today - after the Blues tabled an offer of £4m plus add-ons.

Butland is agonising over the move due to concerns about the potential lack of first-team football he would get at Stamford Bridge.

But Chelsea are understood to be prepared to loan Butland back to Birmingham for the rest of the season, to help their hopes of landing their man.
