Lindegaard signs new contract

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has agreed a new four-year deal.

• Man Utd set to spend £40m

Denmark international Lindegaard, 28, moved to Old Trafford from Aalesund in January, and he impressed during a run in the first-team last season before losing his place due to injury.

The form of David de Gea in the second half of the season has seen Lindegaard fall down the pecking order, but he said he is relishing the challenge.

"I'm very pleased to have signed a new contract," he told the club's official website. "I'm glad and proud that the manager has shown the confidence he has in me by giving me a new deal.

"There is nowhere in the world I would rather be than right here. The competition for places is tough, as it should be in a club like this. It only makes us better as individuals and, more importantly, stronger as a team.

"It's what I have dreamt of all my life and nothing makes me more proud than wearing the Manchester United badge."

Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Lindegaard remained in contention for the No. 1 spot and is delighted he has agreed to prolong his stay at the club.

"Anders is still relatively young for a goalkeeper but he has come on leaps and bounds since joining us last year," Ferguson said. "There is healthy competition in the goalkeeping department, which is always good for the team, albeit a headache for me!

"I am delighted he has signed a new contract and also delighted to see that he has clearly returned from the summer break in good shape after the disappointment of suffering an injury last season."
