1 min read

Jack Butland has joined Manchester United on loan from Crystal Palace for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.

The Red Devils had been in the hunt for extra competition at goalkeeper after Martin Dubravka was recalled from his own temporary spell by Newcastle United.

United boss Erik ten Hag had confirmed to the media on Thursday that Butland was set to arrive and provide competition to David de Gea and Tom Heaton, and the move was confirmed on Friday.

“This is an amazing club and one that I am now proud to represent. I’m really looking forward to working with an unbelievable goalkeeping group, supporting each other every day to create the best training and playing environment for the team,” Butland told United’s official website.

“I’ve played against David de Gea and represented England alongside Tom Heaton; they are top-class keepers, and I am relishing the opportunity to compete alongside and support them as team-mates.

“There is a lot that this group can achieve this season and I’m excited to play my part in helping everyone to reach these ambitions.”

Butland, 29, has 87 Premier League appearances to his name and has represented England on nine occasions.
