Cherries Line Up England Keepers

Cherries Line Up England Keepers

The Cherries are lining up Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland and Burnley’s Nick Pope as possible replacements for Asmir Begovic.

The Cherries  number one has come under fire for his under-par displays this season and lost his place to Artur Boruc for a nine-game spell between January and March.

Reports have indicated a falling out between the Bosnian international and boss Eddie Howe and it would be no surprise to see the club sign another keeper to challenge for the spot next season.

Butland has endured an up and down campaign at Stoke but kept six clean sheets in succession until Tuesday night’s 3-1 loss at Swansea City.

Stoke know the England international wants to return to the Premier League and they cannot offer him that opportunity next season as they currently sit 15th in the Championship.

Pope has hardly played this season and, with only one season of top-flight football behind him, would represent a bigger gamble but Burnley could be persuaded to sell him after Sean Dyche finally decided that Tom Heaton was his number one.
