Manchester United agree to extend Dean Henderson’s Sheffield United loan

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder faced the press via Zoom on Monday ahead of the restart of the Premier League.

One big question mark hanging over the Blades has been the ongoing future of Dean Henderson.

Henderson has enjoyed a remarkable season in goal at Bramall Lane. However, the keeper’s loan contract from Man United expires on June 30.

Some had suggested that Man United would order Henderson to return to Old Trafford for July 1 in order to hurt Sheffield United’s chance in securing European football next season.

However, Chris Wilder has today confirmed that Henderson will remain in Sheffield until the end of the campaign. He said:

I spoke to Ole (Gunner Solskjaer) yesterday morning and I thanked him for his co-operation with Dean.

We’re in a situation where Dean will hopefully agree a deal to stay until the end of the season in the coming days.
