Butland would prefer to go out on loan in England, but isn't ruling out a move abroad.
"A few conversations have been had," he told The Sentinel, "and ideally I would stay in this country.
"If it is abroad, I want it to be as close as I can to home, otherwise it's difficult for people to come and watch you.
"Also, you'd want to know if the team is in the Europa League or Champions' League. These are all things to consider before making a decision."
