Stoke City reportedly reject an opening £12m offer from Bournemouth for England goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Stoke City have reportedly rejected an opening £12m bid from Bournemouth for England goalkeeper Jack Butland.

The Championship side agreed with Butland earlier in the summer that he can leave for the Premier League if potential suitors make an offer of £20m plus add-ons.

Eddie Howe is on the lookout for a new first-choice keeper this summer after Asmir Begovic suffered a mediocre 2018-19 campaign for The Cherries.

According to the Daily Mail, Bournemouth must now decide whether to return with an improved bid after Stoke "flatly rejected" their opening £12m offer.

Butland, who joined Stoke in 2013, has made nine appearances for England and remained in Gareth Southgate's squad last season despite playing in the Championship.

Stoke, while happy to keep Butland, will listen to offers for a number of outfield players - including £6m midfielder Ryan Woods and former Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic - as they look to address their bloated squad this summer.
