Crystal Palace has completed the signing of England goalkeeper Jack Butland from Stoke on a three-year deal.

The 27-year-old will cost the Londoners an initial £1million, with a deal reached on the closing day of the English domestic transfer window.

Butland has been capped nine times at senior level for his country and was handed his England debut by Palace boss Roy Hodgson in 2012.

"I’m very happy that the club has managed to acquire the signature of Jack to join us and compete for a place amongst our goalkeepers at the club," Hodgson said of their new 'keeper.

"Jack is a player that I worked with for four years at England. His last game for me as England manager was a very unfortunate one where he broke his ankle and that cost him his place in the 2016 Euros. But I’ve always believed in Jack’s potential.

"I am aware that his last spell at Stoke hasn’t been the happiest one for him but I sincerely believe that with his qualities, coming to a new club will enable him to resurrect his career and show once again what a good goalkeeper he is."
