Southampton are tabling a bumper bid for Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland.

The Sunday Mirror says Southampton boss Nigel Adkins has stepped up his £3million bid for Euro 2012- bound keeper Butland.

Adkins is ready to battle Manchester United and Arsenal for the Birmingham kid, 19, after Premier League-bound Saints made an enquiry.

Butland was called into the England squad after Norwich's John Ruddy had to pull out with a finger injury.
