Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has spoken of his pride at signing a new contract with the club, the Belfast Telegraph has reported, with the Denmark international insisting he has had no thoughts of moving on.

Lindegaard has been at Old Trafford since January 2011, signed as back-up to the now-retired Edwin van der Sar. Last season Lindegaard had to compete with new signing David De Gea to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s first choice goalkeeper, and duly kept the Spaniard out of the side through mid-season until an ankle injury gave ended his campaign early.

The 28-year-old Lindegaard made 11 appearances last season, conceding only four goals - two of which came in the same game, a 3-2 FA Cup victory over local rivals and eventual Premier League champions Manchester City.

Lindegaard admitted the show of faith his new four-year deal represents was greatly pleasing, and that rather than shy away from the competition with De Gea, he was relishing it. Lindegaard added: “I’m glad and proud the manager has shown the confidence he has in my by giving me a new deal. The competition for places is tough. It only makes us better as individuals and, more importantly, stronger as a team.
