Stoke City are set to make a move for Darren Randolph if, and when, they sell number one Jack Butland – we can reveal.
England international Butland remained with the Potters last season following relegation from the Premier League, but he is now looking to move back to the top-flight – with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough both said to be keen on his services.
And Stoke are looking to options to replace him, with Middlesbrough star Randolph at the top of their list.
The Irish shot-stopper was voted Championship Goalkeeper of the Year last campaign, and Boro are not in a position to turn down a generous offer for any of their squad.
In-turn Boro are looking at their own options and one of those they are looking at is Jon McLaughlin, from rivals Sunderland.
