Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is impressed with Birmingham City's Jack Butland and believes that he has got "a massive future".

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has hailed Birmingham City's Jack Butland and believes that he has got "a massive future".

Butland, 19, made his debut for England in a friendly international against Italy last month and also featured for Great Britain at the London Olympics.

"Jack's a great young keeper, I spoke to him throughout Euro 2012 and during the Olympics," Hart is quoted as saying by The Sun.

"He's a great prospect but he just needs to play now. To play in the Olympics at 19 is a great experience for him.

"He's got a massive future at the top."

Butland was also part of England's Euro 2012 squad as a replacement for the injured John Ruddy, but did not make any appearance in the competition.
