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.

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.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
