Anders Lindegaard Completes Permanent Move To Deepdale

2 July 2016

Danish international goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has signed a permanent contract at Deepdale.

The 32-year-old had his contract cancelled by former club West Bromwich Albion and has now put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the Lilywhites.

The former Manchester United custodian spent the second half of the 2016/17 season on loan in PR1, making 14 appearances and helping the Lilywhites to a top half finish.

Speaking after completing his contract he 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. 

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

Manager Simon Grayson was delighted to have completed his goalkeeping stable, adding Anders to the already assembled Chris Maxwell and Mathew Hudson, he added: “I think it's a real good signing for us, we've worked hard behind the scenes to try and make this happen and I'm grateful to West Brom for helping us do that. 

“It's great that Anders made it clear from the start that he wanted to come here and we have been able to secure him on a permanent basis. 

“We are delighted with it and it's another step along the way with the recruitment process that we've been doing over the summer.”

Anders joins fellow Dane Simon Makienok, the aforementioned Maxwell, Tommy Spurr and Eoin Doyle as new recruits into the dressing room so far this summer.
