Stoke legend Banks happy Butland available to replace Begovic

Stoke City legend Gordon Banks admits he's a big fan of Asmir Begovic.

Banks reckons the best keeper in the Premier League currently is Chelsea's Petr Cech.

“I like Cech,” he told the Sunday Express. “I think he’s excellent. And Asmir Begovic at my old club Stoke City is one of the best as well. He’s only 25 and he does look very good – in the air and on his line.

“There are lots of rumours he might be leaving Stoke, but I’m glad the club have bought a young English goalkeeper in Jack Butland.”
