Voted for by England Supporters Club members, Butland received 54% of the final count to beat close friend Nathan Redmond and fellow U21 teammates James Ward-Prowse, Carl Jenkinson and Jesse Lingard.
City’s number one picks up the accolade after captaining Gareth Southgate’s side at the U21 European Championships in the Czech Republic, before stepping his way into the England senior team toward the end of the year.
