West Brom block Leeds move for keeper Lindegaard

Anders Lindegaard: Joined West Brom from Manchester United over the summer

West Brom have rejected an enquiry from Leeds United to sign goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard on loan, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

New Leeds boss Steve Evans is looking to bring in a new keeper as he looks to bolster his goalkeeping options at Elland Road.

Current Leeds No.1 Marco Silvestri has come in for criticism this season and Evans is thought to be keen on bringing in an experienced custodian as he continues his reshaping of the squad at Leeds.

Former Manchester United keeper Lindegaard is understood to be among Evans’ top targets, but West Brom are reluctant to loan out Lindegaard.

Lindegaard has been forced to play second fiddle to Boaz Myhill at West Brom this season since his arrival at The Hawthorns from Old Trafford this summer.

The Denmark international has made just one appearance in the Capital One Cup this season, but West Brom have blocked Leeds’ attempts to sign Lindegaard as they do not want to leave themselves short in the goalkeeping department as Ben Foster continues his recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury he sustained in March.
