Wes Foderingham could be set for a move to Premier League Sheffield United following his Rangers exit, according to a report.

The Sun (29 June, page 61) claims that Fod is being considered as a “back-up” option for the Blades with Simon Moore unproven in the top flight and the future of Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson uncertain.

Foderingham found games tough to come by in recent seasons at Ibrox under Steven Gerrard and he might be reluctant to move to Bramall Lane only to find himself in a similar position.

The former Swindon keeper made 130 appearances in his first three seasons for Rangers under Mark Warburton, Graeme Murty and Pedro Caixinha – but only managed 13 in two seasons under Gerrard following Allan McGregor’s return to Ibrox.


A lot seems to hinge on whether the Chris Wilder can keep Henderson in the Steel City for another season or whether Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants him back at Old Trafford to challenge David de Gea.

Foderingham is unlikely to have much chance of being number one for the Blades though so he might well decide to bide his time and wait for an offer which gives him regular games.


After two years spent on the bench at Ibrox, Foderingham can’t really afford to miss out on much more football.
