Southampton, Spurs target Butland reaffirms Birmingham commitment

Southampton and Tottenham target Jack Butland has reaffirmed his commitment to Birmingham City.

Butland is focusing on sealing his place in Birmingham's first XI.

"I want to play as many games at the highest level as I possibly can," he told the Daily Express.

"I should be pushing for a first-team place at Birmingham. That's what I want, not to be sitting on the bench. It is time I played now.

"I've had some great experiences with England at the European Championship and I can't wait for the Olympics to start. My name has been linked with some interested clubs and that's flattering. It's not an option for me now though, I need games."
