Former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has today completed a permanent move to West Brom.

Earlier tonight the club announced the arrival of the 31 year old stopper on a free transfer having successfully passed a medical and he has signed a two year deal with us.

The Denmark international has been with the Old Trafford outfit since January 2011, and in his time with them – as backup – he has made 29 appearances in total – three of which came last season.

Speaking to after completing his move and being handed the No 21 shirt, he explained.

‘Since moving to England I’ve been impressed with how well West Brom have done in the Premier League. I had a good chat with Tony Pulis – I must call him the ‘gaffer’ now – and he convinced me it would be a good move for me and the club. From there things moved very quickly. I was very keen to get it done so I can just concentrate on the thing that matters most, the football. I am very happy to join and hope I can make a big contribution this season.’

Goalkeeping coach Jonathan Gould said himself following his arrival that he feels this is now the strongest goalkeeping unit that Albion have had in many years as he joins the injured Ben Foster and Boaz Myhill as seniors as the more youthful Jack Rose.

‘We are bringing an experienced goalkeeper into the mix. Anders has an international pedigree, he’s a big guy and been part of a very good team at Manchester United. He knows Fletch and Jonny Evans already – I’m sure he will fit in very well.’
