After weeks of rumours, Anders Lindegaard has finally signed for Manchester United. The Danish keeper has joined the club in a deal that will keep him at the club until at least 2014, for a fee expected to be around £3.5m.

“Joining Manchester United is a dream come true for me,” he said. “The club is such an institution in Denmark, it’s an honour to come here. I’m looking forward to playing and training alongside some of the great players in football today. I can’t wait to be part of this team and to make my contribution to keeping the team at the top of the game.”
