England goalkeeper, Jack Butland, has joined Premier League giants Manchester United this January transfer window on a loan deal.

He told Manchester United’s website that he was excited about the transfer.
“I am over the moon,” Butland said.
“It has been a whirlwind few days but to call yourself a Manchester United player is pretty awesome and I don’t think it has quite sunk in yet.”
He also expressed his delight at joining Erik ten Hags team with posts on his Twitter and Instagram pages.
“Massive club. Massive opportunity. Can’t wait to get started @ManUtd #mufc,” the goalkeeper wrote.
Butland played nine matches for Crystal Palace last season. He has been capped nine times by the Three Lions of England.
