The Robin Returns

Birmingham City’s England Under-21 international goalkeeper, Jack Butland has returned to Blues after a very rewarding spell on loan to Mark Yates’ Cheltenham Town.

The 18-year-old shot stopper played 11 times for the Robins, who are now just 4 points behind Crawley Town in top spot.

Butland’s performances earned him a nomination for League Two player of the month for November.

Blues manager, Chris Hughton is yet to decide if the youngster will be allowed to go out on loan again in January.

“Jack played very well at Cheltenham,” Hughton told bcfc.com.

“But he is still a very young goalkeeper and we have to assess where we are with him now he’s back at Birmingham.

“It’s whether we look to keep him or whether we look to get him out on loan again come January.

“Anything we do with Jack has to be for all our best interests.”

Robins boss, Mark Yates is very keen to have Butland back next year if possible.

“Jack’s situation will take care of itself,” he said.

“I’d like to thank him for his efforts and we are desperately keen to get him back which both Jack and Birmingham know.

“Birmingham will do everything they can to make it happen because they know it is doing him the world of good playing games and he has been a big part of us.”

    Interesting that both Norwich and Swansea are fighting to sign Zigic in Jan. I cant see either affording his wages to start with!
