If Leeds sign Anders Lindegaard it would be brilliant business

The West Bromwich Albion player has been linked with a loan move to Leeds United.

According to a recent report from the Sun, Leeds United are trying to sing West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard on loan this month, and if the Whites succeed it would be a brilliant piece of business.

Lindegaard signed for the Baggies from Manchester United in the summer but the good form of Boaz Myhill means the Dane has had to make do with one League Cup appearance to date.

At 31, and considering his substantial talent, Lindegaard should be playing regular first-team football right now after too long spent on the bench at both Old Trafford and now The Hawthorns, and Elland Road could be the perfect short-term destination for him.

Leeds are starting to impress under new manager Steve Evans, and their 3-0 victory against Huddersfield on Saturday came just days after their 1-0 win against Cardiff City.

Two wins, four goals and back-to-back clean-sheets may suggest Leeds are fine with current number one Marco Silvestri, but the Italian has come in for some criticism this season and Lindegaard is certainly a considerable step up if he can replicate his best form.

With 13 clean sheets in 29 first-team appearances for Manchester United under his belt, the time has come for Lindegaard to become a first-choice stopper somewhere; so what chance impressing at Leeds in a short-term move before potentially heading there for good?

If Evans can pull that one off, he really could be the saviour Leeds fans have been crying out for.
