Manchester United has announced that Jack Butland joined the team on loan until the end of the season.
Butland was playing for Crystal Palace this season. He made 15 appearances for them across all competitions. The 29-year-old will be in Man United’s squad for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.
“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 commented.
“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 teammates.
“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.”
Man United football director John Murtough added: “Jack is an excellent goalkeeper with great experience throughout his career. His mentality and personality will be a real asset to our superb group of goalkeepers and the whole squad.
“Jack joins David, Tom, and our young keepers to form a strong group who will all support each other in creating an optimum training and playing environment. We’re all looking forward to welcoming him into the group.”
