Championship club Fulham are being linked with a move for West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, according to Get West London.

The West London club already currently have Andy Lonergan, Joe Lewis and Marcus Bettinelli on the books at Craven Cottage but Manager Slavisa Jokanovic is understood to be weighing up a move for a fourth goalkeeper.

Andy Lonergan is the current first choice goalkeeper at Fulham while Joe Lewis has been providing cover on the bench. Marcus Bettinelli is currently out of action with a long term knee injury.

The signing of former Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard could provide Lonergan with some stift competition although The Cottagers’ number one has been in superb form in recent weeks.

Lindegaard joined West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer from Manchester United last summer and signed a two year deal at The Midlands club but has found opportunities limited at The Hawthorns.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has fielded both Ben Foster and Boaz Myhill ahead of the 31 year old Dane so far this season.

Lindegaard started his playing career in his homeland appearing for Odense, Kolding and Aalesund before his move to Manchester United in 2010. The Dane has struggled to make in impact in England having made just 29 appearances in four and a half years at Old Trafford.

The goalkeeper has represented Denmark at full international level on five occasions and will be looking to gain some further first team playing experience if he is to force his way back into the Denmark squad.
