Man United’s Dean Henderson ‘likely’ to be sent out on loan again next season – Mail

As per a report from the Daily Mail, Dean Henderson is unlikely to usurp David de Gea as Manchester United’s no.1 next season.

Blades stint

22-year-old shot-stopper Henderson has spent the last couple of seasons on loan with Sheffield United.

After impressing during a stint in League One with Shrewsbury, Henderson subsequently made the step up to the Championship last season, where he went on to play an integral role in Sheffield United’s return to the Premier League.

Across 45 league appearances, the English talent racked up 21 clean sheets, cementing himself as a firm fan favourite at Bramall Lane.

And Henderson’s stellar form has since carried into his first experience of top-flight football.

Amid Sheffield United’s impressive campaign to date, the former Carlisle United youth has conceded just 22 goals across 26 appearances.

This is a defensive record bettered only by top of the table Liverpool.

Henderson on the move again?

The end of the campaign, though, will see Henderson’s future up in the air once more, after his loan deal at Bramall Lane expires.

This is set to pose a dilemma for Manchester United, with David de Gea’s status as undisputed no.1 having come into question once again of late.

The Spaniard was the subject of heavy criticism over the weekend, after his calamitous mistake cost the Red Devils dear versus Everton.

As per the aforementioned report from the Daily Mail, though, de Gea’s sub-par form does not look set to cost him his spot between the posts at Old Trafford, for next season at least.

It is claimed that, despite talks being planned with Henderson’s representatives this month to reassure him of the club’s belief in his talents, the Englishman is expected to be farmed out on another temporary stint away from Manchester this summer:

‘The 22-year-old is likely to be sent out on loan for a third season, possibly at Sheffield United again, unless De Gea’s situation changes.’
