Joe Hart is urging Manchester City to take a close look at England teammate Jack Butland.

The Sunday Mirror says it is understood Hart has already recommended Birmingham City goalkeeper Butland to Premier League champions Manchester City, while Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all scouted the teenager.

But there is a real feeling within the England camp that Butland could be England's No.2 by the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and putting real pressure on Hart, as long as he is playing regular first-team Premier League football.
