Burnley confirm signing of former Manchester United goalkeeper

Premier League outfit Burnley have this afternoon confirmed the arrival of goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard at the club.

The move comes after Clarets mainstay Tom Heaton dislocated his shoulder during his side’s matchup with Crystal Palace two weeks ago, with the English international now set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Backup Nick Pope has taken over starting duties during Heaton’s absence, but news of the severity of their ever-reliable no.1’s injury left Burnley in urgent need of further depth between the posts.

As a result, the Turf Moor outfit have moved to secure the signing of Anders Lindegaard, following a successful trial with the club over the last week.

The 5-time capped Danish international will wear the no.22 for his new side, and joins Pope and Adam Legzdins as options for Clarets boss Sean Dyche in goal.

33-year-old Lindegaard enjoyed a 5-year stint with Manchester United between 2010 and 2015, before moving onto West Bromwich Albion for the 2015-16 campaign.

He spent last season with Championship outfit Preston North End, but was released by the club this summer.
