Leeds look likely to sign Stoke and England keeper Jack Butland on an emergency loan. Boss Brian McDermott said in today's press conference that current number 1 Paddy Kenny is an injury doubt for Saturdays trip to Middlebrough, which would leave the club with just rookie Alex Cairns. McDermott also admitted that Leeds had agreed a deal in principle to bring someone in ahead of the match.
Meanwhile, stoke boss Mark Hughes on his press conference has said that Butland is heading to Leeds in a loan move!!
Butland is very highly rated, and was in fine form for Barnsley against Leeds earlier this season when on loan at the South Yorkshire club..deal expected to be announced within the next 24 hours-just don't ask who's funding it!!
