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.

Northamptonshire Steelbacks produced a stunning bowling performance to shock the Birmingham Bears in the first semi-final of the T20 Blast competition at Edgbaston.

Four early wickets for Northamptonshire slowed Birmingham's hopes for a big early score, with David Willey getting the top three.

Fifty-one from Ateeq Javid helped Birmingham post a respectable score though, with Laurie Evans scoring a quick-fire 18 to total 131 from their 20 overs.

Northamptonshire started strongly though, and apart from a slight wobble when a few wickets fell in the middle overs, cruised to the total.

Opener Richard Levi top scored for the Steelbacks, scoring an unveaten 63, with Shahid Afridi hitting the winning runs with two overs to spare.

Northamptonshire will take on either Hampshire or Lancashire in this evening's final.
