Liverpool launching bid for Birmingham keeper Butland

Liverpool are lining up a bid for Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland.

The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants new England keeper Butland to be Pepe Reina's long-term ­successor.

The Kop chief has made an official move for the young shot-stopper, who wore the Three Lions gloves for the first time last week.

Rodgers is willing to pay Birmingham around ­£7.5millon for Butland - and could even loan him back to Blues, who are fighting to keep the 19-year-old.
