Former Manchester United goalkeeper Andres Lindegaard is once again on the move, but this time only a short spell.
He came to West Brom on a permanent basis in the hope of getting regular football. However, Boas Myhill has dominated proceedings in Tony Pulis’ plans and the situation is unlikely to get any better with Ben Foster’s return just around the corner. Hence, Lindegaard has decided to take the plunge and join a Championship team on loan until the end of the season. He will be playing for Preston North End with a view to secure a move at the end of the campaign.
The Danish international has little experience of playing in the Premier League or the Championship. This is largely because he has spent the best part of the last five years as the understudy to David de Gea at United. There were several opportunities for Lindegaard to leave United, but they were blocked at the final stages by his previous club. The move to Preston is almost certain to give him first-team opportunities since the number one of the Championship outfit – Sam Johnstone – has just been recalled by his parent club United. Lindegaard will be able to make his debut for the Championship outfit when they take on Derby this week.
“The last couple of years have been a long dry walk in the desert and I need to get back playing and that feeling of happiness and enjoyment it brings with it. I have been really missing it, so I am really looking forward to this.I am only here for six months at the moment, but you want to be part of an ambitious project and from what I have heard from the manager and other people at the club it is an ambitious project and that is a very good thing,” said Lindegaard.
