Reports: Liverpool £40m international target makes huge transfer revelation
Jack Butland has come out to deny rumours that he has told Stoke City he wants to leave the club on his social media account after the keeper was linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer.
The Potters stopper went on Twitter to tell his legions of supporters that he was determined to do everything he could to keep the struggling Premier League side in the top-flight and completely dismissed the hearsay.
Before this spreads any further, i haven’t told the club i want to leave, i’m focused on doing everything i can to keep the club in this division! stop believing everything you read! https://t.co/2VN8N8OCFa

A report in The Gambling Times suggested that the 24-year-old has already told the PL strugglers he wanted to leave.
The Potters have had a miserable season so far and haven’t gotten any better under Scottish manager Paul Lambert – they find themselves two points adrift of the sides who are safe.
And with 53 goals conceded this season they have the league’s worst defensive record.
Butland is the subject of a £40million swoop by the Reds according to The Sun who believe that Jurgen Klopp wants the shot-stopper as a replacement for Simon Mignolet who is unhappy at the lack of game time he is receiving at Anfield.
The Belgian keeper has recently been replaced by Loris Karius between the sticks and as a result, the Liverpool player admitted that his future may lie elsewhere.
