Manchester United’s Dean Henderson to return to Sheffield United on loan
Last Updated: 25/07/19 10:20am
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is to return to Sheffield United on a season-long loan deal, Sky Sports News understands.
The 22-year-old became a fans favourite at Bramall Lane after a successful loan spell in Yorkshire last term, when he helped the Blades achieve promotion to the Premier League.
With two weeks to go until the start of the season, England's U21 international keeper remained at Old Trafford while United continued negotiations with David de Gea over a new six-year contract.
However, it is understood that the former Shrewsbury No 1's return to Bramall Lane has been agreed and will be confirmed before the end of the week.
Henderson made 46 appearances as Sheffield United secured automatic promotion last season. He also played in England's unsuccessful U21 European Championship campaign this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already has De Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and Joel Pereira on the books at United.
