Sheffield United fans are reacting to reports linking their side with the Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

The Sun on Sunday reported that the Blades are huge fans of Foster, who has emerged as a leading target for Chris Wilder's side.

Dean Henderson has continued to star in goal for Sheffield United on loan from their Manchester namesakes, for whom the Watford man used to play.


But it is claimed that the Premier League newcomers fear a permanent deal will be out of their reach next summer.

And that is where Foster, the standout performer in a struggling Watford side, is said to come in, as he nears the final six months of his contract.

But what do those of a Sheffield United persuasion make of the rumour?

This is what they are saying on Twitter...

Foster moved to Watford in a £2.5 million deal from West Bromwich Albion in 2018.

The 36-year-old, who has eight caps for England, has also played for Stoke City and Birmingham City, as well as Manchester United.
