West Brom closing in on Man United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard

West Bromwich Albion are in talks with Manchester United over a deal for Anders Lindegaard, according to Press Association Sport.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has been in the market for a new goalkeeper all summer and has turned his attention to Lindegaard, 31, after failing in a bid to sign David Marshall from Cardiff.

The Baggies had been in discussions with Cardiff about Marshall but refused to meet the Welsh club's valuation of the player -- reported to be £5 million.

Lindegaard has a year remaining on his contract at Manchester United but it is understood his move to The Hawthorns would be on a free transfer.

The goalkeeper, who joined United from Norwegian club Aalesund in January 2011 for a £3.5 million fee, has found his first-team chances limited, making the last of 29 appearances 16 months ago in a 4-0 victory against Newcastle at St James' Park.

Lindegaard would provide competition for Boaz Myhill, with regular West Brom No. 1 Ben Foster not expected back until October as he recovers from a knee injury.

He would be the third player to move from Old Trafford to West Brom this year, following Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans.
