Premier League newbies Sheffield United have confirmed that keeper Dean Henderson will stay at the club until the end of the season.
Henderson’s one season-long deal was set to come to a close on Tuesday, June 30 but due to the extension of the league brought by the Covid break, United have allowed their short stopper to finish his campaign with the Chris Wilder side.
In a statement, Sheffield said: “Goalkeeper Dean Henderson will remain at Bramall Lane until the end of the season after a deal was struck with Manchester United following prolonged discussions between the respective parties in recent weeks.
“Dutch forward Richairo Živković will also remain in South Yorkshire until the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign after a deal was agreed with his Chinese parent club Changchun Yatai.”
The club also confirmed that defender Phil Jagielka, Jack Rodwell, Kieron Freeman and Leon Clarke have had their stay extended too for the remainder of the term.
There will no further association though with Mo Bešić who has returned to Everton with Panos Retsos returning to Bayer Leverkusen.
