‘Would Be A Great Signing!’ ‘Can’t Be Any Worse’ Fans On Social Media Debate West Ham’s Pursuit Of England International

West Ham are weighing a loan move for Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland in the January transfer window, according to reports in England.

The Hammers have lost faith in Roberto after a string of poor displays in the absence of Lukasz Fabianski, and it appears a bid for the England international is on the cards.

Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the news that Butland is on the club’s radar:



It’s true that Butland has had a nightmare season with Stoke so far. He has made a number of mistakes despite having captained the Potters this campaign. In 10 appearances, he has conceded 21 goals and kept just one clean sheet.

However, unlike Roberto, the 26-year-old does have a good past track record. He may just need a change of scenery in order to regain his focus and confidence.

Butland is also still relatively young and with nine England caps, he does have the experience of playing at the highest level.
