Man Utd keeper Heaton happy to wait for chance
But he recognises the lessons currently being learned at United will last his entire career.
"I am eager to make my breakthrough just like everyone else," he said. "With both Edwin and Tomasz in front of me, I accept that is a little difficult at the moment.
"But my ambition is to play at a top club and Manchester United is the biggest club in the world.
"Okay, I could be playing somewhere else but would I be learning what I am learning now? Would I be training with the best players in the world? Probably not.
"You just weigh everything up and make the decision that is right for you."
