Jack Butland sends message to Birmingham City's official Twitter account

Jack Butland broke through at Birmingham City before making a switch to Stoke City in 2013.

Jack Butland has stated how much he enjoyed his time with Birmingham City on Twitter, after the Midlands club sent him a compilation of his best moments while playing at St. Andrews for his birthday.

Butland turns 23 today and his former club were keen to celebrate with him.

As a result, the Blues posted a video of Butland’s best moments, when he was representing them as a youngster.

Butland came through the Blues’ youth system, before going on to make 46 senior appearances for them while he was still a teenager.

Butland also had a spell on loan with the Blues back in 2013, where he went on to make a further 17 appearances.

Butland has since gone on to greater heights, but he still looks back on his time at Birmingham with fond memories.

Butland left Birmingham back in 2013 to join Stoke City, and his career has gone from strength to strength.

The youngster has earned three senior England caps to date, and he is now Stoke’s first choice stopper, following Asmir Begovic’s move to Chelsea last summer.
