Anders Lindegaard joined West Bromwich Albion on August of 2015 on a free deal but the Danish shot-stopper has failed to make an impact with the Premier League club as he has had to settle with a place on the sidelines.
Boaz Myhill and Ben Forster are the main goal-keepers of West Bromwich Albion and Anders Lindegaard just can’t seem to get playing time ahead of those players.
The 32 year old player was loaned out to Preston North End as he wanted to get playing time in another club and he opted to make a switch to the Championship club on a loan deal which kicked off on January of 2016 and extended until the end of the 2015-16 season.
The loan deal has finished and now the future of Anders Lindegaard is uncertain as he is expected to make a return to his parent club West Bromwich Albion but Preston North End are attempting to sign Lindegaard on a permanent deal.
Lindegaard still has 1 more year left in his contract with West Bromwich Albion but considering that he is only playing any important role with the club, Preston North End are hoping that Lindegaard can join them on a permanent contract but one thing which might affect the possible transfer is the wages of the 32 year old shot-stopper as he earns around £20,000 a week.
Championship clubs don’t have the financial freedom to pay such high wages and Lindegaard will have to accept a substantial pay cut in order to join Preston North End on a permanent contract and make his way out of West Bromwich Albion.
Lindegaard has already said that he doesn’t see him making an official return and performing for West Bromwich Albion as the 32 year old shot-stopper said: “I don’t see myself back at West Brom, I don’t think West Brom see themselves having me back. I can’t see why it should end up being like that that would be because we have a contract that we have to respect.
It seems like Anders Lindegaard is not interested in making a return to the Premier League club and perform for West Bromwich Albion.
