Preston North End complete permanent deal for loan star

Preston North End have made the loan of West Brom’s Anders Lindegaard permanent after they signing him on a free transfer as confirmed by the club website.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper moved on loan to the Lilywhites in January and went on to make 12 appearances for the club and impressed as they became dark horses for a play off spot. Preston had been keen to bring him back to Deepdale on a permanent deal and after West Brom cancelled his contract, it gave the side a perfect a chance to do so. He has signed a one year contract with the club.

He comes with good pedigree having been at Manchester United for four years. While there he was in a battle for the number one jersey with David de Gea and was the starter ahead of him for the majority of de Gea’s first season at Old Trafford.

After signing for Preston, 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.

“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.”
