Manchester United manager David Moyes intends to drop David De Gea in favour of his other goalkeeping options over the course of the season.
The Spanish shot stopper has started every game for the Premier League champions this season after claiming the role of the club's undisputed number one choice after a fantastic second half of the 2012/13 campaign.
Denmark international Lindegaard had previously shared first team duties with the former Atletico Madrid 'keeper until he suffered an injury in January 2012 that allowed De Gea to claim the spot as his own.
Despite De Gea's consistency, Moyes has suggested he will consider rotating his goalkeepers in the coming weeks.
"I have faith in David [DeGea] but I want to use Lindegaard and we've got (Sam) Johnstone and (Ben) Amos coming through as well," the United boss told a press conference.

Moyes' side may have not enjoyed their best start to a Premier League campaign this season but De Gea's performances have been unwavering, evident by his magnificent save to stop a goal bound header from Emanuele Giaccherini in his side's recent 2-1 win over Sunderland.
While 18-year-old winger Adnan Januzaj grabbed the headlines thanks to his two well taken goals, De Gea's saved ensured United left the Stadium of Light with a much needed three points to provide a bit of respite amid a slow start to the season with a save that United great Peter Schmeichel described as one of the best he had ever seen.
And despite his intention to rotate his goalkeepers, Moyes remains firmly behind De Gea, believing the young Spaniard will soon be considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
"I think David over the years has come in here and proved himself at Manchester United," Moyes said. "Sir Alex brought him young and played him at a time when it could be difficult to play a young goalkeeper.
"Goalkeeper and centre back these days are two of the hardest potions on the pitch for a young player. Manchester United doing that over the last couple of years has shown what you can get.
"He is a top goalkeeper. He will go on in time to be one of the best there is, I have no doubts about that. He's still young for a goalkeeper, people will be looking at him for the next 10 years."
