Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is in constant contact with the club regarding his future, according to the player's agent.

The Dane hasn't started a Premier League game since December's 4-3 win over Reading with the improving form of David de Gea and an ankle injury leaving him on the side-lines.

The 28 year old has kept two clean sheets in eight starts this season for United, but with opportunities few and far between, and De Gea likely to represent the future in goal for the Premier League leaders.

Therefore, Lindegaard is in regular contact with United concerning his future beyond the end of the season.

"We have a good dialogue with Manchester United regarding all subjects," agent Michael Stensgaard told

"Right now, Anders if fully focused on the exciting end of the season that Manchester United are involved in.

"We cannot predict the future and a lot can happen in football. We are discussing all of our thoughts with Manchester United."

Sir Alex Ferguson pledged earlier in the season that he would rotate his two goalkeepers, but following five successive starts, conceding three at Reading was the final straw for the Denmark international's first team chances.

Lindegaard has begun one of the last 17 United games, in the 1-0 win over West Ham United in the FA Cup, with De Gea relied upon during the majority of the business end of the season.

His hopes of being involved in United's squad during the rest of the campaign has been boosted by Sam Johnstone's loan move to Walsall, to assist with The Saddlers' play-off push.

Walsall have endured bad luck in goal all season with David Grof, Karl Darlow, Ian McLoughlin and Aaron McCarey, who has returned to Wolves, having all turned out, with Johnstone set to become the club's fifth goalkeeper of the season.

Manager Dean Smith said: "I know Manchester United have high aspirations for him and he has already had a couple of previous loan spells at this level so he knows what it's all about.

"I know a lot about the lad and watched him in action recently. I've had some very positive reports on him and am delighted to be able to bring him on board until the end of the season."
