Anders Lindegaard: Burnley sign goalkeeper on deal until end of season

Anders Lindegaard: Burnley sign goalkeeper on deal until end of season”

The former Manchester United goalkeeper had been training with Burnley to keep his match fitness levels up after being left without a club when he left neighbours Preston North End in the summer.

Throughout Heaton's injury, Burnley goalkeeper guarded second goalkeeper Nick Pope is considered to be performed brilliantly in the draw against Liverpool 1-1 at Anfield Stadium on Saturday last week.

"We knew of Anders, we knew he'd turned down a couple of things [and] we knew he had a good history".

"He's coming out of a little quiet spell but he is very motivated". "It seems like an honest place and a very hard-working place and I appreciate being a part of it".

"He spoke to us about his hunger and his desire to work hard, not just to be here for the sake of it, but to actually work hard to try and progress and try and put pressure on the No.1 situation".

Despite Nick Pope impressing in the last two games and new signing Adam Legzdins also on the Turf Moor books, Lindegaard believes he has the ability to challenge for a place in the first team.

"I joined Burnley with the intent of sharpening the competitive aspect of the goalkeeper".

Sean Dyche feels Anders Lindegaard is motivated to take his Premier League chance with Burnley. "I sensed from the first day I came in there was a good atmosphere".

As for a prognosis on Heaton, who did not miss a league game for Burnley for three years after his arrival, Dyche was cautious about setting a timescale.

Asked about a timescale on his return, Dyche admitted: "It's too early yet, but they're really plassed with how the operation went, it's pretty straightforward with regards to what the surgeon is used to seeing".

"It's pretty straightforward with regards to what the surgeon is used to seeing".

"Tom is fine, but it's a settling down period for now".
