Butland close to joining Man Utd on loan from Palace

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of goalkeeper Jack Butland from Crystal Palace.

The 29-year-old is expected to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours ahead of joining on loan until the end of the 2022/23 season.

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

Butland, 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.

United are currently looking to bring in extra competition for De Gea after Martin Dubravka returned to Newcastle, leaving Tom Heaton as the club's second-choice keeper, with the 36-year-old named on the bench for Tuesday night's win over Bournemouth.

Borussia Monchengladbach's Yann Sommer is someone United have scouted for a while, but any move for the 34-year-old would be unlikely if De Gea signs a new deal.
