Anders Lindegaard reacts on Twitter after completing West Brom transfer today


Anders Lindegaard has left Manchester United for West Brom.

West Bromwich Albion confirmed on their official website earlier today that they have snapped up goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard from Manchester United.

The Baggies have been active in this summer's transfer window, luring the likes of James Chester, Jonny Evans, James McClean, Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon to The Hawthorns.

However, one position has caused manager Tony Pulis problems all summer. With Ben Foster out with a long-term injury, backup goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has been pressed into action, and with little cover behind him, West Brom have been left short between the sticks.

Now though, West Brom have made their move for a new shot stopper - Danish international Anders Lindegaard, who has arrived from Manchester United on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old, who joined United from Norwegian side Aalesund in 2010, has largely been a backup at Old Trafford, playing just 19 Premier League games since his arrival.

Now though, Lindegaard has a great chance of playing regularly for the Baggies - and took to Twitter after his deal was completed to celebrate.

Lindegaard will have to compete with Myhill whilst Foster is out, but it's unlikely that Pulis would have been able to lure him to the West Midlands without assurances over his playing time.

In his limited appearances for United, Lindegaard showed that he can be a solid goalkeeper - just what Pulis has been looking for this summer.
