Soke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has suggested he would be open to moving to AFC Bournemouth in the summer.

That’s according to Football Insider, who report that Butland is desperate to make the step back up to the Premier League for next season.

39-year-old Artur Boruc is out of contract this summer, whilst Bosnian international Asmir Begovic has been less than consistent between the sticks this term.
