Sean Dyche says Anders Lindegaard has joined Burnley to compete for the No 1 spot following the injury sustained by Tom Heaton.
“With Tom getting injured, we started looking around,” Dyche said ahead of Saturday’s visit of Huddersfield.
“We knew of Anders, we knew he’d turned down a couple of things [and] we knew he had a good history.
“He is coming out of a little quiet spell but he’s very motivated. I spoke with him as did [goalkeeping coach] Billy Mercer of course, and he seems very motivated to come in and really fight and get fit and sharp, which he has shown even over a number days.
“He spoke to us about his hunger and his desire to work hard, not just to be here for the sake of it, but to actually work hard to try and progress and try and put pressure on the No.1 situation.
“We welcome him to the club.”
