Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has revealed he could leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.

The Danish shot stopper has found games hard to come by this season due to the impressive form of Manchester United number one David de Gea.

Lindegaard has made just one Premier League appearance for Manchester United this season which has raised doubts over the 29-year-old's long-term future at the club.

And the custodian, who joined Manchester United in 2010 from Norwegian outfit Aalesunds FK, has spoken out on his current situation at Old Trafford.

Speaking to TV3 Danmark, Lindegaard said: "It was nice to get the opportunity to play for the first time in almost half of a year." 

"It has been a long time between outings, you can do the maths yourself.

"I am like David and I would like to play in every match. I haven't done that this season.

"But when that is said, I am happy to get the chance to play. You always want to play, but that [my future] is not something I want to discuss with you now."

Moyes will have to sign a new deputy goalkeeper if Lindegaard was to leave at the end of the season - as Ben Amos and Sam Johnstone do not have the experience to fill the void left by the Danish international.

Manchester United have previously been linked with making a move for Lindegaard's fellow Scandinavian Kasper Schmeichel, however he could be tempted to stay at current side Leicester City following their promotion to the Premier League.
