Town boss Paul Jewell added: "We're delighted to have Stephen here and he will add to the competition we have in the goalkeeping areas."

Henderson started his career at Bristol City in 2007 before joining Portsmouth in the summer of 2011, where his impressive performances attracted West Ham's attention.
