Sunnmorsposten, a newspaper based in Aalesund where Lindegaard played before joining United in 2010, reported that the player had been let go by the Premier League club and that his agent, Michael Stensgaard, would be making a statement later on Wednesday.

"Spread your wings and fly #mufc #fly #manchesterunited," tweeted the 30-year-old Lindegaard, seemingly confirming his imminent exit from Old Trafford, where he battled with Spain's David de Gea for the position of first-choice keeper.

He made 29 first-team appearances.
