Anders Lindegaard says there is nowhere he would rather be than Manchester United, after signing a new four-year contract.

A Red Devils fan as a kid, Lindegaard knew he was arriving as back-up to Edwin van der Sar when he signed from Norwegian outfit Aalesunds 18 months ago. The 28-year-old famously introduced himself by declaring he was not at Old Trafford "to pick my nose".

And, until an ankle injury ended his season in January, he had been as good as his word, ousting £17million man David de Gea with a string of solid mid-season displays, and said: "I'm very pleased to have signed a new contract. I'm glad and proud that the manager has shown the confidence he has in me by giving me a new deal."
