The free agent, who made eight appearances for the Lilywhites in the Championship last term, has reportedly been talking to the club regarding a potential move to Turf Moor following the injury suffered by skipper Tom Heaton.

Former Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Nick Pope made his Premier League debut against the Eagles and is expected to resume his place between the posts when the Clarets travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on Saturday.

Dyche also has 30-year-old former Birmingham City goalkeeper Adam Legzdins, signed last month, at his disposal but Paul Robinson's retirement, coupled with Heaton's setback, still leaves the Burnley boss short in that department.

The Danish stopper, 33, started his career at OB Odense before moving to Norway where he featured for Aalesund.

He then moved to Old Trafford on New Year's Day in 2011 for £3.5m where he made 29 appearances in all competitions.

A fruitless spell at West Brom followed in 2015, as he made just one appearance for the Baggies against Norwich City in the League Cup, which prompted a move to Deepdale.
