Jack Butland Takes to Twitter to Reveal He’s Finally Back in Action

Jack Butland Takes to Twitter to Reveal He’s Finally Back in Action

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has revealed he’s received the best early birthday present ever, as the England star has finally been declared fit.

The 23-year-old fractured his ankle a year ago, whilst playing for England in a friendly against Germany.

Despite undergoing an operation to try and solve the problem, a series of complications and niggles have repeatedly forced Butland to abort his attempts at a comeback.

However, the shot stopper revealed this afternoon that his surgeon “couldn’t be happier” with the player’s ankle as the fracture has completely healed:

Butland was considered a serious contender for Joe Hart’s England jersey before the youngster was plagued with injury troubles, making his return to the pitch of serious interest to England boss Gareth Southgate.

Equally, Stoke manager Mark Hughes will be ecstatic with the news as his team sit 9th in the Premier League table.

The Potters have conceded just 10 goals since the turn of the year, however, it’s hard to see Butland not reclaiming his place between the sticks in the next few weeks.
