Not content with being halfway through the season of his career, Jack Butland has gone and proved that he’s a top banana off the pitch too.

The Stoke goalkeeper has donated £5,000 of his own cash to the Great Britain women’s deaf football team in order to help them fund their trip to the Deaf World Cup in Italy.

The GB team’s campaign, which has already been backed by several full women’s international players such as Lucy Bronze, Jo Potter and Fran Kirby, will cost £20,000 in total.

Before Butland’s donation, they still needed to raise £7,050 in just 14 days. Now they’re a whole lot closer to their goal.

Lovely stuff.
