Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni reportedly adds West Ham United goalkeeper Stephen Henderson to his squad ahead of Tuesday's friendly with Oman.

West Ham United goalkeeper Stephen Henderson has reportedly been called up by the Republic of Ireland for Tuesday's friendly with Oman.

The Irish number one shirt is currently up for grabs following the international retirement of Aston Villa stopper Shay Given.

Henderson, who made his Hammers debut in the recent 2-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, has yet to receive his first cap at senior international level.

However, according to Sky Sports News, the 24-year-old has been added to Giovanni Trapattoni's squad for the upcoming match at Craven Cottage.

Henderson made 27 appearances for Portsmouth last season.
