Danish international Lindegaard completed a move to the Clarets after signing a deal in September 2017, until the end of the season.

The former Manchester United goalkeeper, 33, was signed to strengthen Sean Dyche’s squad following the injury-enforced absence of captain Tom Heaton, who dislocated a shoulder in the September victory over Crystal Palace.

Lindegaard was a free agent after leaving Preston North End at the end of the 2016/17 season and signed after spending just over a week training with the Clarets’ squad.

A former Goalkeeper of the Year with clubs in Norway and his native Denmark, Lindegaard spent five seasons at Old Trafford, earning a Premier League winners’ medal in 2012/13 in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge of United.

He then moved to West Bromwich Albion in August, 2015 and joined Preston, initially on loan, in January, 2016, spending 18 months at Deepdale ahead of his switch across Lancashire to Turf Moor.
