Van the man for Heaton

Published Add your comment

On-loan Rochdale goalkeeper Tom Heaton has set his sights on emulating veteran Manchester United stopper Edwin van der Sar.

Heaton, 23, signed for Dale from United last week before making his bow in Saturday's 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Chesterfield and - despite suffering a debut to forget - he is confident he can ultimately reach van der Sar's level.

He said: "He is in his late 30s and I'm hoping one day to get to that level. Playing in these games will hopefully set me on the right path."
