Jack Butland Barnsley loan

Barnsley have signed Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland on a 93-day loan deal.

The England international, 20, joined the Potters from Birmingham in January for £3.5m, but was immediately loaned back to Blues for the rest of the season and is yet to play for Stoke.

With Barnsley's regular number one Luke Steele out with a back injury, Butland is likely to go straight into the team for Saturday's trip to Leicester.

"It's important for my development to continue to play matches," he tweeted.external-link

"I see this as a step forward and a chance to take the work I've done with Stoke onto the pitch, and in turn help the club push on."
