Anders: "It Was A No Brainer"

2 July 2016

Goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard admits that joining North End on a permanent basis was an easy decision for him.

The Danish stopper signed a one-year deal with the Lilywhites after spending the second half of last season on loan at the club, and was delighted to get the deal over the line. 

Speaking exclusively to PNE PlayerHD, Lindegaard said: "It's nice to come back and be a part of the whole pre-season and see all the lads again, its' a great locker room. 

"I'm really happy that things have fallen into place before we get closer to the season. 

"It was a very easy decision, I could have gone to several other clubs in England but it was a no brainer, I wanted to stay here. 

"I don't have to worry about where to go next now, and I don't have to worry about what my parent club thinks. I am here to perform a job and to help the club do as well as possible for the coming season. 

"It's a very good group as we've spoken about many times. We maybe just need that little bit more quality in the squad to push for the higher places in the table.

"I know the manager and the coaches and my teammates and they all know me and it's not like it's a fresh start, it's something we can build on. 

The former Manchester United 'keeper will team up with a fellow countryman for the first time in eight years with the signing of Danish striker Simon Makienok. 

"I can't remember the last time I played with a Danish guy, I think it was when I was actually back in Denmark. 

I have been away for seven or eight years so it's great. He's a very nice guy and I know his football qualities from when he was back in Denmark where he had a big profile. 

"If he gets it right and if we get him right then he is going to be a big quality for our team."
