Anders Lindegaard Joins West Bromwich Albion


Goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has left Manchester United for fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer on a two-year deal.

This comes after defender Jonny Evans also joined Tony Pulis’ side over the weekend, with James Chester, Darren Fletcher and fellow goalkeeper Ben Foster also at the West Midlands club.

Speaking of Foster, he is currently sidelined through injury until October, with Boaz Myhill the only first team keeper available for the Baggies.

The Dane made just 29 appearances since his move from Aalesund in January 2011, with Edwin Van der Sar and then David De Gea occupying the first team slot.

Lindegaard leaves Old Trafford with two Community Shields (2011 & 2013), and the Premier League title under his belt, and will remain in England for at least the next two years.

The 31-year-old still has plenty of time on his side for his career to grow, with him being a goalkeeper, but will be hoping to dislodge Myhill as soon as possible, before the return of Foster, to prove he is capable of featuring regularly in the Premier League.

Lindegaard’s longest spell in the United side came during a five match period in November 2012, but failed to rubber-stamp his credentials whilst De Gea sat out with wisdom tooth problems.

Despite his obvious frustration at barely featuring, Lindegaard has never been a problem for any of his three United managers he has worked under, highlighting his strong and calm character and personality.

We wish him all the best with his future career.
