Former England goalkeeper Jack Butland is in line for a reunion with Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.

The Premier League club made contact with Butland’s current club Stoke on Thursday night and a deal is expected to be sorted out before the transfer window closes at 5pm.

Butland, 27, was once tipped as the future of English goalkeeping but has seen his career suffer through injury and loss of form over the last couple of years.

He won the first four of his nine England caps under Hodgson and the Palace boss believes the keeper is young enough to turn things around and provide competition for Vicente Guaita.

Butland was relegated with Stoke in 2018, the year he last played for England, and struggled last season in the Championship.

Stoke have been open to offers for him in this window and he hasn’t played this season.
