Sheffield United boss Wilder on Dean Henderson return/Ravel Morrison training with Blades

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has this afternoon provided an update on the potential return of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Blades stint

Henderson, a 22-year-old shot-stopper, came up through the youth ranks of United, after joining the club from Carlisle in 2011.

However, after struggling to carve out any sort of place for himself in the first-team plans of the Red Devils, the English U21-international has since been sent out on a series of loans over the last couple of campaigns.

And, on the back of being named in the League One Team of the Year last summer following an impressive spell with Shrewsbury, Henderson’s performances in the Championship with Sheffield United this past season have seen the youngster continue to showcase his immense potential.

Henderson started all 46 of the Blades’ league outings, keeping 21 clean sheets, and playing a crucial role in the superb season enjoyed by Chris Wilder’s men.

United’s 2-0 win over Ipswich back in April saw them secure 2nd-place in the Championship table, and a spot in the Premier League for next season.

‘Discussions ongoing’

As such, Sheffield United have since understandably made it crystal clear that they intend to lure Henderson back to the club for next season.

And, speaking to Mark Walker of the Press Association a short time ago, Blades’ boss Chris Wilder provided the latest on the ongoing negotiations between the board at Bramall Lane and Manchester United:
