Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland changes agents

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

The Sun says he is leaving Beswicks Sports and is poised to join the ranks of Triple S Sports and Entertainment Group, who guided Wayne Rooney's glittering career.

Butland grew frustrated at failing to get a top-flight move following relegation with Stoke and looked for a new representation.

The 25-year-old's move to Triple S has yet to be formalised but is expected to be announced after the international break.

They are run by super-agent Paul Stretford, who negotiated Rooney's deals during a career that saw him get the Three Lions captaincy.

Harry Maguire is also a Triple S client and they oversaw Angus Gunn's £10million to Southampton this summer but Butland was also looking to move to a Prem club but ended up staying at the Bet365 Stadium.
