Report: Leeds pursue loan deal for West Bromwich Albion's Anders Lindegaard

Leeds United are reportedly attempting to bring Anders Lindegaard in on loan.

According to The Sun, Leeds United manager Steve Evans is working on a deal to bring West Brom goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard in on loan.

The Whites have seen inconsistent displays from shot stopper Marco Silvestri this season, and with summer signing Ross Turnbull ruled out with an injury, manager Evans will be looking for experienced cover behind Italian Silvestri.

With just weeks left of the loan window in the Football League, Evans will have to move quickly to bring in a new goalkeeper - even after Silvestri's superb display against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Now, The Sun report that Leeds are pursuing a loan deal for West Brom goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, despite the Dane only joining the Baggies over the summer.

The 31-year-old left Manchester United for West Brom having made just 29 appearances for the Red Devils in four-and-a-half years at Old Trafford - but his fortunes at The Hawthorns haven't been much better.

Lindegaard has played as a backup to Boaz Myhill so far, and with Ben Foster moving closer to a return, Lindegaard could find himself as the third choice goalkeeper under Tony Pulis.

It's now suggested that Leeds boss Evans is hoping to take advantage of that by securing a loan deal for Lindegaard, just months after he made the move to West Brom.
