Birmingham boss Clark surprised Stoke's Butland not in Premier League

Birmingham City boss Lee Clark is surprised to see his former goalkeeper Jack Butland back in the Championship.

Butland was sold to Stoke City almost a year ago and is now on-loan at Barnsley.

After victory over Barnsley, Clark said: "I didn't expect to be seeing Jack, no, to be honest with you. I thought he would be plying his trade in the Premier League this season.

"With the options that were out there, I didn't know whether Stoke was going to be his choice.

"But he made it his choice and for whatever reason it hasn't worked.

"He has got to play."
