Butland has been helped to settle into the England camp by his Birmingham coach Dave Watson, who was asked to assist head goalkeeping coach Ray Clemence for the Euros.
An England source said: “Jack has really impressed everyone within the squad and hasn’t looked out of place at all. He has a real chance of being even more involved at the next World Cup if England qualify, but he’ll need to play football.
“There is no point Jack moving to one of the Manchester clubs and sitting on the bench. He has to go somewhere he will play, even if it is one of the so-called smaller clubs.”
