The goalkeeper has failed to make a single Premier League appearance for United this season despite the poor form of the champions.

The Danish international, 29, has played in just two cup games, including Sunday's shock FA Cup third round defeat to Swansea.

Lindegaard knows David De Gea will keep him stuck on the sidelines for the foreseeable future unless the Spanish No.1 suffers a loss in form.

But Lindegaard insists he is happy to remain second choice and has no intention of asking to leave the club.

Lindegaard said: "I want to play more but I have to underline I am happy to be at United.

"To be part of the club, for me as a human being, is almost better than ever because of familiar things, and family and so on.

"It is a weird situation. In other years I have played more but not felt as good as I do right now. It is a very weird position to be in.
