Report: West Ham fail to sign Manchester United's Anders Lindegaard; Robert Green seen as alternative

West Ham

West Ham have missed out on Manchester United's Anders Lindegaard due to his high wage demands.

According to the Mirror, West Ham have failed in their attempt to land Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.

The Hammers are in the market for a new goalkeeper with first-choice Adrian suspended for tomorrow's clash with Bournemouth - after the Spaniard saw red against Leicester last time out, he will now serve a three-match ban.

With the club doubting the ability of backup 'keeper Darren Randolph, they had been targeting the out-of-favour Manchester United man. However, the Dane's wage demands have reportedly posed a stumbling block in negotiations. 

This leaves the club pushing for Queens Park Rangers 'keeper Robert Green, 35, who has recently been linked with a return to Upton Park, according to the Daily Mail.

Green - who has an abundance of experience in the top-flight - has now emerged as the club's top target, with the club in a race against time to complete a deal in time for the weekend.

The England international has made three appearances for QPR in the Championship this season, conceding an average two goals per game - by no means the most impressive record.
