United 'discuss' Danish keeper

BY foxsports • November 18, 2010

Manchester United appear to have opened talks with Aalesund over Denmark international goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.

Aalesund chairman Bjarne Haagensen has revealed he is currently in England with Lindegaard's agent, Henrik Hoff, to talk with United.

Haagensen admitted that a deal to take the 26-year-old to Old Trafford could be just hours away.

"Henrik and I are in place in Manchester," Haagensen told TV2.

Asked if a deal was close, he responded: "It is. We are in the middle of it. I can't say more right now. We will send a press release in three or four hours."

Lindegaard himself is returning to his club after keeping a clean sheet against Czech Republic - but he would not comment on the rumours of an imminent switch.

"I have only heard the rumours about United, I have absolutely no comment," he told VG.
