Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Jack Butland on loan from Premier League side Crystal Palace. The Eagles star will come as a replacement for Martin Dubravka who returned to Newcastle.
Butland is yet to feature for the Eagles this season under Patrick Vieira and will be a back up to David De Gea for the rest of the season.
Manchester United released an official statement on their website to confirm the signing of Butland from the Eagles on loan.
“Manchester United is pleased to confirm that Jack Butland has joined the club on loan from Crystal Palace until the end of the 2022/23 season,” the club confirmed.
“The 29-year-old goalkeeper has played 87 games in the Premier League and has been capped nine times by England.”
Here is what Butland said after signing for Manchester United: “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.
“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.”
