Manchester United close in on Denmark keeper

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Denmark goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard, according to reports on Thursday.

With current No 1 Edwin van der Sar set to retire at the end of the season Alex Ferguson has been searching for a man to take the Dutchman's gloves.

He has been scouring Europe for a new stopper and has scouted the likes of Maarten Stekelenburg of Ajax, Schalke's Manuel Neuer and Lyon's Hugo Lloris, who played for France at Wembley last night.

But with reserve keeper Tomasz Kuszczak also likely to leave Old Trafford this summer, the club have also been looking at Danish keeper Lindegaard, who currently plays for Norwegian club Aalesunds FK, and are reportedly close to announcing a deal has been done for the stopper to join in January, for around £3.5m.
