According to The Scottish Sun, English goalkeeper Wes Foderingham is set to sign for Sheffield United after leaving Rangers after its contract expired in May. The 29-year-old had spent five years at Ibrox, appearing in 143 games in all competitions.

Foderingham was the first-choice goalie under managers Mark Warburton, Pedro Caixinha, and Graeme Murty but he had to act as a substitute for Allan McGregor after Steven Gerrard brought him back in 2018.

Next season the Blades could be Dean Henderson without Manchester United keeper on loan and this will give the former Rangers a chance to challenge the berth launch.

Foderingham could also be playing in Europe next term as Sheffield is looking to finish places in the Europa League following a fine campaign since being promoted by the English Championship last term.

He has already agreed with Chris Wilder ‘s side and when he left Rangers he was not short of options, with Birmingham City and other English clubs targeting him.

The former England youth international at Bramall Lane will fancy his chances and look to develop themselves as a top-flight goalie. He was a young player with Fulham and Crystal Palace but never had an opportunity to play for them, with his only experience in the English Football League coming to Swindon Town.
