Premier league’s surprise team have moved quickly to strengthen their squad with the addition of a goal keeper in Wes Foderingham.
Chris wilder has decided to add a new goal keeper to bolster his goal keeping ranks as he anticipates the departure of Dean Henderson who is on loan from Manchester united.
Wes Joins Sheffield United on a three year deal having part ways with Glasgow Rangers at the end of may 2020.
The 29 year old started his football career at Fulham although it was a crystal palace he secured his first professional contract. After signing on the dotted line, Wes had several loan spells from crystal palace to further his development as opportunity at Selhurst park stadium were not easy to come by. He moved to Swindon town in 2011 where he could feature against his new club. Foderingham’s nine clean sheets in 15 appearances convinced the then Swindon boss Antonio Di Canio that Wes was the right man to keep their goal posts safe and thus he was signed from Crystal Palace in January 2012 for an undisclosed fee.
Foderingham must be fresh in the Blades fans’ minds as he featured in semi final playoff match which Sheffield lost on aggregate having draw 5-5 before his team Swindon lost the final to Preston North End. He then moved on to Scotland to sign for Glasgow side Glasgow Rangers where he managed over 100 appearances at the Ibox.
“I’m delighted to join Sheffield United,” Foderingham told sufc.co.uk. “It is an exciting time for the club after an incredible first season back in the Premier League. I’m looking forward to meeting the team and can’t wait to get started.”
Sheffield United goal keeping Coach is delighted to have secured the acquisition of the former England under 20 international after following him for a long time.
“We have followed his development for a number of years and are delighted to be able to bring him in to bolster the goalkeeping department to give us options and competition for places. Wes is an experienced ‘keeper and we look forward to working with him.” United’s goalkeeping coach, Darren Ward, said.
