Manchester United news, Red Devils have been doing the business on the pitch lately and are now close to completing some off it.

Butland undergoes medical

Jack Butland underwent a medical at Manchester United on Thursday, with the Crystal Palace goalkeeper poised to make a six-month loan move to Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old former England international will act as David de Gea's understudy for the second half of the season.

The move follows Newcastle's decision to recall previous deputy Martin Dubravka, who made just two appearances for United and is now back at St James' Park. Butland has been playing second fiddle to Vicente Guaita in south London since joining Palace from Stoke City two years ago.

Manchester United News: Ten Hag wants Kudus reunion

Erik ten Hag is set to attempt a third raid on former club Ajax since becoming Red Devils boss, as he plots a swoop for Mohammed Kudus.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian forward, who can play as a striker, shone at the World Cup in Qatar and Ajax have subsequently slapped a £35million price tag on his head.

Ten Hag brought Kudus to Amsterdam from Danish side Nordsjaelland in 2020 and the Daily Star report that the Dutch manager is keen on a reunion in Manchester, just as he did with centre-back Lisandro Martinez and winger Antony. The versatile attacker boasts five goals in 14 Eredivisie games this season and scored against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Erik ten Hag's side have stormed to four successive victories since returning from the World Cup break, advancing to the EFL Cup quarter-finals and picking up a maximum nine points in the Premier League. After missing out on Cody Gakpo to arch-enemies Liverpool, the Red Devils are still keen to sign a forward in the January transfer window.
