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.

Spurs target could return for West Brom on Saturday

West Brom assistant Dave Kemp admitted Saido Berahino could return for the Baggies against Stoke after his exile.

The striker was dropped again as Albion edged out Port Vale 5-3 on penalties in the Capital One Cup following a forgettable 0-0 draw after extra-time at The Hawthorns.

"That's something we can assess between now and then, we'll see what happens as it unfolds. Once we get to next Tuesday (the transfer deadline) it'll be clearer.

"He was considered tonight but there's other stuff. This transfer window is upsetting not just to Saido but to everyone.

"He's training fine, you can imagine he's a young man and there's a lot going on and your eye might not be on the ball. You have to be totally focused to perform.

"The manager has to make a decision."

West Brom have rejected an offer from Spurs for striker Saido Berahino, the club have confirmed.

The forward has been linked with a move away from The Hawthorns, but West Brom are determined to keep him.

We have no interest in selling Saido which is what I have told Daniel Levy.

I know we are living in an age where no club can say ‘never’ about the possibility of selling a player.

However, the prospect of selling Saido is simply not on our agenda.

We are going forward with Saido very much in our plans and still striving to add players to improve the balance of our squad.
