West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard on loan to provide cover after Adrian was suspended following a red card against Leicester City, according to the Daily Mail.

The Danish goalkeeper has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, and despite the uncertain situation of David de Gea and Victor Valdes, the former Aalesund stopper has failed to play a game for the Red Devils this summer, apart from the single appearance against the Club Americas during their pre-season tour of the United States.

Louis van Gaal has preferred summer arrival Sergio Romero ahead of the host of 'keepers at his disposal. This has prompted the goalkeeper to look for options outside of Old Trafford and according to talkSPORT, the 20-times English champions are willing to allow the goalkeeper to leave the club on a free transfer.

West Ham are currently without a recognised goalkeeper after Adrian was sent off for a high tackle during their clash against Leicester City on Saturday 15 August.

The decision from the referee looked harsh on the day, but the FA have rejected the Hammers' appeal and indicated that the original three-match suspension will stand, thus ruling the Spanish stopper out for the east London club's next three fixtures.

"A claim of wrongful dismissal submitted by West Ham United in relation to Adrian has been unsuccessful following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing," a statement on the official FA site read.

"The goalkeeper was dismissed for serious foul play. Therefore, the player's three-match suspension, which is the standard penalty for this offence, remains with immediate effect," the statement added.

West Ham will have to call up on second choice 'keeper Darren Randolph for their upcoming clashes against Bournemouth, Liverpool and Newcastle United.

The Republic of Ireland international was acquired on a free transfer from Birmingham City this summer, but looks like Slaven Bilic is looking for a more experienced player to negotiate the tricky clashes against Liverpool and Newcastle and provide able cover for the rest of the season.
