Man United have signed Jack Butland 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 the goalkeeper position 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.

“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.
