Jack Butland has signed a new long term contract at Stoke keeping him at the Britannia Stadium until 2021.

The England international goalkeeper has signed a new 5-year contract.

Chief Executive Tony Scholes told Stokecityfc.com:

“We are naturally delighted that a player of Jack`s quality has signed a long-term contract.

“We`ve always held Jack in the very highest regard but he has exceeded even our expectations since Mark selected him as our first choice goalkeeper.
 
“As a Club we feel it`s important that we tie down our talented young players on lengthy contracts and Jack`s new deal is a fitting reward for his progress this season.”

Butland joined Stoke from Birmingham City in 2013 and has since made 36 appearances for the Potters and been capped by England three times.
