Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is prepared to loan out goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Hughes has agreed in principle to send the young keeper to the Championship in order to give him regular football.

"We're going to have a look at the options but it will have to be right for Jack and right for us," said Hughes.

"It's important for him in terms of his development. We're pleased with how he's developed this year. He's been out on loan again and then Asmir got injured and he was able to have Premier League games and he did great."
