Lindegaard joins Clarets
Burnley have today confirmed the signing of former Manchester United and Preston goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard with the Danish international joining until the end of the season.
Having completed his move, Lindegaard said: “I’ve had a good week here and I’ve had a very good impression of the whole club and all the people here. It’s not hard to fit in nicely here. It seems like an honest place and a very hard-working place and I appreciate being a part of it.
“I have seen the first two games Nick has played and he’s done very well. I have a lot of respect for that. I am here to try and sharpen up the competition in the goalkeepers’ department and we’ll see what happens down the line.
“I feel good physically and I still want to play. I come here with a good spirit and I have a lot of enthusiasm for getting started. I sensed from the first day I came in there was a good atmosphere, that things are in a good place, and it has paid off with a good start to the season.”
Lindegaard, alongside Nick Pope and Adam Legzdins, takes the number of fit senior goalkeepers back up to three following the injury to captain and England goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
He is certainly not the first Danish goalkeeper to sign for Burnley – Brian Jensen was here for a decade from 2003 to 2013.Share this page :
