Stephen Henderson: Recalled by West Ham from loan spell at Ipswich

Henderson was due to remain at Portman Road until the end of the season, but West Ham have activated a 24-hour release clause to bring the highly-rated keeper back to Upton Park.

The 24-year-old has impressed during his time at Portman Road and has kept six clean sheets in his last nine matches to help Ipswich climb clear of trouble at the wrong end of the Championship table.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has been keeping tabs on Henderson's progress at Ipswich and has decided to bring him back to the club for their Premier League run-in.

The news is a blow for Ipswich chief Mick McCarthy as he looks to secure their Championship survival.

Henderson enjoyed two loan spells at Ipswich this season, making 16 appearances between October and January before returning on loan for a second stint on transfer deadline day in the winter transfer window.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
