Crystal Palace’s Jack Butland joined Manchester United with club looking for new back-up option; David de Gea’s current deal runs out at the end of the season, with United holding the option of a one-year extension, but there have been talks over a longer-term contract.

Manchester United have signed goalkeeper Jack Butland from Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season.

It is understood United will pay his wages in full for the time Butland spends at Old Trafford.

Butland told the club’s website:

“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.”

The 29-year-old, who was part of England’s 2018 World Cup squad, is yet to make an appearance for the Eagles this season and is thought to be keen on the idea of a move to United.
