London - West Bromwich Albion have signed Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard for an undisclosed fee, the Premier League club confirmed on Monday.
Albion manager Tony Pulis moved for the Danish international after deciding not to meet Cardiff's valuation of their goalkeeper David Marshall.
Lindegaard agreed a two-year contract with Albion after being told by United boss Louis van Gaal that he would be allowed to leave.
"Since moving to England I've been impressed with how well West Brom have done in the Premier League," Lindegaard told Albion's website.
"I had a good chat with Tony Pulis - I must call him the 'gaffer' now - and he convinced me it would be a good move for me and the club.
"I am very happy to join and hope I can make a big contribution this season."
The 31-year-old, who joined United from Norwegian club Aalesund in 2011, found his first-team chances limited at Old Trafford and he made the last of his 29 appearances 16 months ago against Newcastle.
Lindegaard is the third player to move from United to Albion this year, following Scotland midfielder Darren Fletcher and Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans, who completed his switch to the Hawthorns on Saturday.
