Manchester, England – Denmark goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United, the Premier League runners-up confirmed on Friday.

The 28-year-old had become Sir Alex Ferguson's first choice until he suffered a serious ankle injury in January, but he has since returned to full fitness and will be part of the squad that heads on a pre-season tour to Scandinavia this weekend.

“Anders is still relatively young for a goalkeeper, he has come on leaps and bounds since joining us last year,” said Ferguson.

“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.”

Lindegaard added: “I'm very pleased to have signed a new contract.

“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.” – Sapa-AFP
