Report: Manchester United's Anders Lindegaard following Evans to West Brom on free transfer


Anders Lindegaard is reportedly set to leave Manchester United and join West Bromwich Albion.

According to The Telegraph, Manchester United outcast Anders Lindegaard is poised to join West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer.

The Danish international, 31, joined United from Norwegian outfit Aalesund in 2010, and has spent most of his time at Old Trafford as backup to David De Gea.

With just 19 appearances in the Premier League in almost five years at Old Trafford, Lindegaard has been an afterthought of late, particularly under Louis van Gaal.

Given that other goalkeepers De Gea, Sam Johnstone, Sergio Romero and Victor Valdes are all still Manchester United players, Lindegaard has become a forgotten man at United.

Now, The Telegraph believe that Lindegaard is set to leave United on a free transfer, and will join Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion.

The Baggies, who snapped up United veterans Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans in January and this summer respectively, are now set to swoop for another Old Trafford outcast in Lindegaard.

Manager Tony Pulis has been searching for a goalkeeper due to Ben Foster's long-term injury, and Lindegaard will come in to compete with Boaz Myhill between the sticks.
