Manchester United FC have signed goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard from Norwegian side Aalesunds FK on a three-and-a-half year contract.
Lindegaard, who has signed for an undisclosed fee, is free to train with his new club throughout December but will not be eligible to play for the Red Devils until the transfer window opens in January 2011.
The 26-year-old has caught the eye since joining Aalesund from Odense BK in 2009, subsequently winning a place in the Denmark national side. "Joining Manchester United is a dream come true for me," said Lindegaard, who is expected to be Edwin van der Sar's long-term replacement. "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."
