Butland suffered a season-ending ankle injury while on international duty with England and the keeper will also miss Euro 2016 as a result.

Forward Walters may also miss the rest of the season after a knee operation but Bojan is ready to fill the void created by his absence.

The former Barcelona man hasn’t started any of Stoke’s last seven fixtures but he insists he is fully fit and ready for action if called upon by boss Mark Hughes.

He told the Stoke Sentinel: “Of course, Jonny Walters is a good player for us. He is the one player you always want to be playing because he always tries to help the team, in offensive and defensive.

“But we have big players and we are going to be good.

“If you don’t play, it is not easy. I want to start every game, of course, and I am here to play, to enjoy football and to help Stoke City. I am always fit and always ready to play.

“It is true, for a time it was a little bit difficult after the Christmas games because I play a lot of games and I didn’t feel 100 per cent.

“But now I am ready to play and give 100 per cent like always. I am sure I will play again.”
