United complete Lindegaard deal

The 26-year-old passed a medical in Manchester earlier this week

and has now signed a deal until 2014. Lindegaard will train with

United from now, but he will not be eligible to play until the

transfer window re-opens in January. Sir Alex Ferguson was

delighted to get his man, commenting: “Anders is one of the

brightest young keepers in the game. “The challenge at Manchester

United is always to look to the future and in Anders, we have

signed a goalkeeper of great presence and even more promise.

“Having the time to train with him before he is registered will be

an important period for him – almost like a pre season to get him

integrated with the other players.” Lindegaard added: “Joining

Manchester United is a dream come true for me. “The club is such an

institution in Denmark, it’s an honour to come here. “I’m looking

forward to playing and training alongside some of the great players

in football today. “I can’t wait to be part of this team and to

make my contribution to keeping the team at the top of the game.”
