Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland is a target for Crystal Palace this summer as Roy Hodgson looks to strengthen his options in goal.

According to South London News, the Eagles are looking to Butland amidst reports linking Vicente Guaita with a move back to La Liga. 

The former Getafe shot-stopper moved to Palace on a free transfer after his contract expired with the Spanish side last summer, initially signing a three year deal at Selhurst Park. 

Guaita could be set for a return to Spain at the end of this season, however, and Palace are said to be lining the England international up as their replacement.

The 25-year-old currently plays in the Championship for the Potters following their relegation from the Premier League, and could be tempted to force a move through with Stoke currently out of contention for a return to the top flight this season.

Butland joined the Potters from Birmingham in a deal worth over £3million in 2013 and is said to currently be valued at £15million.


Who else could Palace look to as Guaita's replacement?
