Stoke manager Jones admits he may drop Butland

Stoke City manager Nathan Jones admits he may have to drop Jack Butland.

The goalkeeper, who has been linked with an exit from the club, let in two shockers in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Preston.

"We are travelling on the bus and there's a big story about Jack being left out of the England squad, it's all unsettling," he told Sky Sports.

"Maybe I need to put him out of the firing line and wait until the window shuts to get his head focused because all the stories are about what's not happening to Jack rather than him being Stoke City goalkeeper."
