It’s no secret that the Blades had been desperate to bring in a new number one after Aaron Ramsdale left for Arsenal earlier in the window, and Olsen had emerged as an early option.
And, the deal has been confirmed now, with the Yorkshire side confirming his arrival on social media on Tuesday night.
The Sweden international arrives with great pedigree, having won nearly 50 caps for his country, whilst he has had spells with Copenhagen, Everton and Roma in the past.

Therefore, securing his services for the rest of the campaign is a major boost for the Championship side and Olsen will expect to go straight into the XI against Peterborough on September 11.
As you would expect, the fans are very pleased with this signing and here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
