Reports via The Sun suggest that the former DC United manager is eager to secure Butland's services and make him the linchpin of their goalkeeping squad. 

This unexpected twist in Butland's career path has sparked intrigue and discussions among football enthusiasts.

However, it is believed that a modest transfer fee may need to be negotiated for Butland to make a move south of the border. 

The decision to sign the former Crystal Palace goalkeeper is a pivotal one for the club, with former Rangers manager Michael Beale having previously designated Butland as his number-one choice during his tenure at Ibrox.

Jack Butland's journey through professional football is worth noting. He began his career in the youth ranks of Birmingham and made his senior debut for the club in 2010. 

In 2013, Butland made a significant move to Stoke City, marking a pivotal point in his career.

As the former DC United manager pursues the idea of Butland donning the gloves for the club, it will be fascinating to see how this transfer story unfolds and whether Butland will once again make a move that alters the course of his career.
