Manchester United confirmed the acquisition of Jack Butland from Crystal palace on a loan deal.
Butland will be part of Old Trafford until the end of the 2022/23 season after Newcastle recalled their goalkeeper Martin Dubravka from United.
The new signing will join David de Gea and Tom Heaton as a goalkeeper for the Red Devils.
In his first statement as a Manchester United player on Friday, January 6, the 29-year-old expressed his excitement about joining the team.
“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 noted.
He was welcomed to the side by Erik ten Hag ahead of United’s FA fixture against Everton at Old Trafford.
Butland has played 87 games in the Premier League and has been capped nine times by England alongside Heaton.
In his statement, Butland noted that United can achieve a lot in the ongoing season.
John Murtough, Manchester United football director, praised Butland for his experience in the goalkeeping department.
United's sporting director added that the new player will join the rest of the group in training immediately.
