West Ham United interested in Anders Lindegaard loan – report

by Robbie Dunne

West Ham are interested in signing1 Anders Lindegaard on loan to replace their suspended shot-stopper Adrian.

The Hammers’ Spanish goalkeeper was sent off against Leicester City last weekend following a karate style kick on Jamie Vardy and that’s left them with a weakness at the back.

Lindegaard has been told that he can leave Manchester United on a free and the 31-year-old has been linked with a move to Rennes and now West Ham.

The goalkeeping situation in Old Trafford is certainly a strange one with Lindegaard, David de Gea and Victor Valdes all seen in the stands for United’s opening three games of the new season.

Only Sam Johnstone and Sergio Romero are deemed suitable enough for Louis van Gaal to consider for selection. Valdes had a very public falling out with Van Gaal and he has no future at the club but to allow Lindegaard walk when the options at the position are so thin is might be considered a strange decision by some.

West Ham are also said to be keen on QPR goalkeeper Robert Greene but Lindegaard’s wages are significantly lower than that of Greene’s and so the Danish keeper is considered a higher priority.

The coming weeks will go a long way to deciding United’s fate this year and if they are to mount a successful challenge on the Premier League title, they will need to move De Gea from the stands to the field. Regardless of the Lindegaard situation, De Gea is of top priority for United as of now.
