Alex Ferguson is ready to join the £3m chase for Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland.

Fergie sent Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele to make a personal check on Butland in Cheltenham’s game at Rotherham.

England under-21 international Butland is currently on his second loan spell with Cheltenham and has also been regularly watched by Arsenal this season.

The 19-year-old has represented England at every level up to the under-21s but is still yet to make a first-team appearance for Birmingham.

Cash-strapped Blues are expecting serious interest in the summer and are prepared to sell Butland if they receive a suitable offer.

United spent £17.8m on David de Gea last June but are set to enter the scramble for Butland at the end of the season.
