As a result, Olsen’s loan deal with Sheffield United, who he joined last summer from Roma, will be prematurely terminated.

The veteran was keen on leaving the Championship side after recently losing his place to Wes Foderingham. Olsen suffered an injury during the international break in late November and was unable to win back his starting spot.

He departs Sheffield United after making a total of 11 appearances with the club.
