West Ham want Manchester United outcast Anders Lindegaard on loan

Published Add your comment

West Ham United are exploring the possibility of signing Anders Lindegaard on loan to cover for Adrian, reports The Mail.

After being sent off against Leicester City, the FA confirmed that Adrian would be suspended for the next three games.

Slaven Bilic has already considered a move for Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green, who played over 200 games for the Hammers during a six-year stay between 2006 and 2012.

However, Green's wage demands are higher than that of Lindegaard, leaving Bilic with a reason to consider the Denmark international.

Louis van Gaal has already told Lindegaard that he is free to leave Old Trafford this summer and Manchester United have tried to drum up interest by offering him for nothing.

But despite the £0 price tag, West Ham are not considering a permanent move for the 31-year-old. They fully intend to hand the No1 spot back to Adrian once his suspension is served.

Peripheral figure

Lindegaard has been with Manchester United since 2010, but has made a staggeringly small amount of appearances during that time. Indeed, following his arrival from Aalesund, the Dane has made just 29 appearances for the Red Devils.

He enjoyed a spell as the club's first-choice goalkeeper after David de Gea was dropped by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2012/13, but has since seen his stock fall significantly.

Goalkeeper exodus

Lindegaard could be one of four goalkeepers to leave Old Trafford in the next 12 days with De Gea linked with a move to Real Madrid, Victor Valdes set to leave and even rookie Sam Johnstone pushing for a loan deal to Preston.

That would leave one goalkeeper, new signing Sergio Romero, in Manchester United's squad.
