West Brom are in talks with Manchester United over a deal for goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has been in the market for a new goalkeeper all summer and has turned his attention to Lindegaard after failing in a bid to sign David Marshall from Cardiff.

West Brom had been in discussions with the Bluebirds about Marshall but refused to meet the Welsh club's valuation of the player - reported to be £5million.

Lindegaard has a year remaining on his contract at Manchester United but it is understood his move to The Hawthorns would be on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old, who joined United from Norwegian club Aalesund in January 2011 for a £3.5million fee, has found his first-team chances limited, making the last of 29 appearances 16 months ago in a 4-0 victory against Newcastle at St James' Park.
