Stoke and England goalkeeper Jack Butland is to undergo an MRI scan on Saturday after pulling out of his expected comeback for the Potters' Under-23s on Friday night.
The 23-year-old has not played since last March when he fractured his ankle on Three Lions duty in Germany, with a setback suffered over the summer requiring more surgery.
Butland has been nearing a return and was named in the starting line-up for the Under-23s' clash against their Reading counterparts on Friday, only to withdraw from the fixture prior to kick-off.
Speaking prior to the senior team's game with Burnley at the bet365 Stadium, Stoke assistant Mark Bowen has revealed Butland elected to pull out having felt a problem in the warm-up and will be tested on Saturday to determine if he has aggravated the ankle issue again.
