Wilder told talkSPORT: “Brilliant. Fabulous. I am delighted for Aaron [Ramsdale], he's a great guy. It was a tough period for him, as it was for everybody.
“We had a few young players there at Sheffield United. There are no hiding places in there especially when you're not getting results.
“I just think it shows you what his character is about. I talked to Steve Round about Aaron when potentially he was moving and I am delighted for the boy
“You've seen the connection he has with the supporters.
“And in the England squad, it opened up a little bit for him in the summer, with a couple of injuries – with Dean Henderson being injured and Nick Pope. he took his chance incredibly well and impressed everybody.
“He has continued to go from strength to strength, so I am delighted for him."
