Bournemouth target Butland eager to return to Premier League

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland is eager to return to the Premier League.

Bournemouth have already had a ­£12million bid turned down by Stoke, with the Potters slapping a £20m valuation on their keeper.

“I'd never actively look for a move," he told the PFA website. “It's important to me that I am playing at the top level and it's somewhere I think I should be, so I have to look ahead.

“I believe I've given everything I possibly can to the club, both on and off the field, and that's something that, if I ever did leave, I'd walk away knowing I gave my all and I would take pride in that.

“If ever that day came about, it would be a sad one. I owe the club a great deal, and I'll be forever grateful for the connection I have with the club and, hopefully, that will always stay."
