Stoke City manager Paul Lambert has ridiculed claims that Wolverhampton Wanderers are attempting to complete a £35m deal for goalkeeper Jack Butland.

The England keeper and his side look set to be playing Championship football next season and the 25-year-old will be hopeful of remaining in England’s top-flight next season.

In 33 appearances this season, Butland has kept six clean sheets for the Potters, however, has let in 58 Premier League goals.

Wolves are looking at Butland as a potential signing to replace current goalkeeper John Ruddy.

When told about the news, Lambert responded by saying:

“Is that for one glove?

He added:

“The way the modern market is you might get one glove for that. When it becomes a little bit more realistic with the modern day transfer fees then wait and see.

“I know people at Wolves and get along well with them, but that will probably get you Jack’s right hand I think.”
