Deadline Bid for Keeper
Although the inference, from Rafa Benitez, is that following the signing of Demba Ba, Chelsea will not be making any more transfer window signings, newspaper speculation has thrown a very interesting name into the proverbial hat.
News sources are suggesting that Chelsea are getting keener, by the day, to land Birmingham City`s promising England U21 keeper - Jack Butland.

Birmingham, in need of some cash fast, are rumoured to be ready to accept as little as £3 million for the highly rated keeper.
