Manchester United bring in Butland on loan
Erik ten Hag has acted quick to strengthen the goalkeeping position with Jack Butland arriving on loan from Crystal Palace.
Jack Butland has completed his move to Manchester United where he will spend the remainder of the 2022/23 season on loan from Crystal Palace. United have been searching for another goalkeeper after third-choice Martin Dubravka was recalled by Newcastle United just fours months into his £2m loan deal.

United manager Erik ten Hag had announced to the media on Thursday that Butland was set to arrive and provide competition for 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, who turns 30 in March, has 87 Premier League appearances to his name after having made his top flight debut with Stoke in December 2013. He has represented England at all youth levels and has nine caps with the senior side.
