Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is set to see out the remainder of his one-year contract despite the expected arrival of Sergio Romero, according to reports from the Daily Star.
The 31-year-old was seen as surplus to requirements earlier in the summer, but after manager Louis van Gaal decided to axe Victor Valdes for not participating in the reserve squad, the Dutch boss is keen on keeping the Denmark international shot-stopper for at least another 12 months.
This means that Lindegaard is set to compete with Romero to play as back-up to David de Gea, whose expected switch to Real Madrid is in doubt after the two clubs failed to agree on a transfer fee.
Argentina international Romero has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford of late after becoming a free agent from Sampdoria, with United reportedly close to announcing the deal.
Lindegaard only made 19 Premier League appearances in five years at the club, keeping nine clean sheets.
