The Danish goalkeeper has played six consecutive matches for the Championship club, his longest first-team run since coming to England in 2010, and pulled off a stunning double save in North End’s defeat to Cardiff City last weekend.

That was the first time the 31-year-old had been on the losing side for Preston, who signed him on loan from from West Brom in late January for the rest of the season.

After relying on loan keepers this season, the Lancashire club will look to sign someone to a permanent deal in the summer with Lindegaard open-minded about his future.

He said: “I won’t rule anything out. I want to keep playing.

“My competitor at West Bromwich, Ben Foster, has done well since he came back from injury and Boaz Myhill did well when he was playing.

“My family is very happy living where they live.

“It is possible for me to drive from home to work here at Preston

“As I said when I signed, the most important thing is to find happiness in football and so far I have found it here. I want to hold on to that.”

North End boss Simon Grayson is pleased with what his latest on-loan goalkeeper has produced, adding: “Anders has made some really good saves after coming to us and he has shown his experience around the dressing room too.

“It will be his saves on the pitch which he is judged on and he’s been making them.”
