Manchester United have completed the loan signing of goalkeeper Jack Butland from Crystal Palace.
The England stopper, 29, arrives at Old Trafford for the remainder of the season to provide cover for David de Gea along with Tom Heaton.
It comes after Newcastle recalled Martin Dubravka from his loan at Man United on January 1.
Butland said: ‘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.’
John Murtough, Manchester United football director, said: ‘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.’
The 29-year-old hasn’t featured in the Premier League for the Eagles so far this season, and has only played 10 times in the league since moving to the London club in 2020.
He has missed most the current campaign with a fractured finger, and is behind Vicente Guaita as Palace’s No 1 stopper.
However, the keeper – who still has a house in Manchester from his time with Stoke – is back fit and could make his debut against Everton in the FA Cup on Friday or United’s Carabao Cup clash against Charlton next week.
Butland was Stoke’s first-choice keeper for two seasons during their Premier League stay, and became the youngest goalie to play for England when he made his debut for the national team in 2012, aged 19 years 158 days.
