Man United confirm Jack Butland transfer

Manchester United have confirmed Jack Butland's loan deal until the end of the season.

The Red Devils were on the hunt for a backup goalkeeper after Martin Dubravka was recalled prematurely by his home club Newcastle United.

90min confirmed earlier in the week talks had taken place between United and Butland's representatives and now a deal with Crystal Palace has finally been negotiated.

Speaking on the club's official website, Butland said after his move: "This is a great club and I'm proud to represent them. I'm really looking forward to working with an incredible group of goalkeepers who support each other every day to make this happen to create the best training and playing environment for the team."

"I've played against David de Gea before and represented England alongside Tom Heaton; these are top-notch goalkeepers and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to compete with them and support them as team-mates. There's a lot that this group does can achieve this season and I look forward to doing my part to help everyone achieve those goals.

Butland was a first-choice goalkeeper in the Premier League earlier in his career but has only been a backup goalkeeper at Crystal Palace in recent years and will fill a similar role at Old Trafford.
