Erik ten Hag has confirmed Manchester United’s latest signing in the January transfer window.
Jack Butland became Manchester United’s first signing of the winter transfer window after he arrived at Old Trafford on Thursday.
Ten Hag signed the goalkeeper as a new back-up David de Gea after Newcastle United cut short Martin Dubravka’s loan spell.
Ten Hag also confirmed that De Gea, who he described as a top performer, will remain the number one goalkeeper at Old Trafford.
Asked about United’s move for Butland, Ten Hag said: “Yes, so Martin [Dubravka] was recalled and now to set up we need three experienced goalkeepers.
“I’m really happy with David [de Gea], it’s quite clear, he’s our No. 1, he’s a really good performer, but there’s always something that can happen with David as well, and you have to be prepared for that.”
