The transfer guru announced online that the AS Roma goalkeeper will sign on a one-year loan as a replacement for Aaron Ramsdale.
Ramsdale was recently sold to Arsenal for a fee that could rise to as much as £30m, leaving United short of an option between the sticks.
Hearing that their club looks finally set to fill the void in goal, Blades fans soon expressed their delight on Twitter in great numbers.
Here’s what these Sheffield United fans said…
“Here we go!!!!!”
These fans certainly seem to be delighted with the potential new signing. Olsen would also come with some experience of English football.
United fans will likely hope that time spent in the country already will help the 31-year-old settle in fast as their club aims to achieve promotion back into England’s top division.
