Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says he won't be mentoring Birmingham City youngster Jack Butland while they're away with England.

Butland is England's third-string keeper, despite not making his first team debut for Blues.

Hart told Absolute Radio: "No, I wouldn't want to mentor him, I'd help him in any way possible, but Jack's got his own route that he's going to take and I'm sure it'll be a successful route. I think he knows, I've known him for a couple of years now, he was there at Birmingham, he knows that if ever required I'd be there for him, but I don't think he really needs it if I'm honest. Like you say, he's got immense potential and he just needs someone to let him show it."
