Manchester United have confirmed their goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has completed a move to West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

” Best of luck to Anders Lindegaard, who has completed a move to West Brom. He played 29 times for #mufc,” United tweeted.

Having featured 29 times, he has been the second choice keeper at the club. Impressive display from David de Gea over the years forced him to sit on the bench, playing second fiddle to the Spain international.

However, De Gea is also set for Old Trafford exit as he is close to completing a move to Real Madrid. The deal could see United get their keeper Keylor Navas move to England, who could replace the Spaniard as the new No 1. The situation will force Sergio Romero become the second choice keeper at United.

Lindegaard will join former United players Darren Fletcher, goalkeeper Ben Amos and defender Jonny Evans at the Hawthorns.
