Video: West Brom get Anders Lindegaard

Sport | Published:

West Brom have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard from Manchester United on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old Denmark international has signed a two-year deal at the Hawthorns.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has made no secret of his desire to add another goalkeeper and after cooling his interest in Cardiff City's David Marshall, made his move for Lindegaard.

A £3.5million signing from Aalesund in January 2011, the keeper has been limited to just 29 appearances in four-and-a-half years at Old Trafford and is now eager to make a contribution to Albion.

"Since moving to England I've been impressed with how well West Brom have done in the Premier League.

"I had a good chat with Tony Pulis - I must call him the 'gaffer' now - and he convinced me it would be a good move for me and the club.

"From there things moved very quickly. I was very keen to get it done so I can just concentrate on the thing that matters most, the football.

"I am very happy to join and hope I can make a big contribution this season."


Goalkeeping coach Jonathan Gould said: "We are bringing an experienced goalkeeper into the mix.

"Anders has an international pedigree, he's a big guy and been part of a very good team at Manchester United.

"He knows Fletch and Jonny Evans already - I'm sure he will fit in very well."
