Stoke fighting to keep Aston Villa, Bournemouth target Butland

Nathan Jones says Stoke City won't be forced into selling Jack Butland for below their asking price.

Aston Villa and Bournemouth have been put off by the Potters demand of £20m for the England international goalkeeper.

"We don't want Jack to go. Jack's a Premier League goalkeeper, no two ways about it," said Jones.

"We would like to get back there as soon as possible so we could give him that platform, but if there is any suitor for Jack Butland, then they have to pay the value. This is not a club that is desperate to sell or needs to sell."
