Birmingham City’s Jack Butland today rejected the chance to talk to Chelsea FC about a projected move, despite the Championship club accepting a bid.

The Midland club last week admitted they would be willing to sell any of their first-team players, because of their dire financial situation.

The European Champions enquired about the Blues stopper, and were told they would be willing to sell the keeper for £3.5m.

Chelsea agreed a deal with the club, only to be told that Butland would not be willing to talk to the West-London club.
