Sheffield United begins talks with Man United over another loan deal for Dean Henderson

Sheffield United have begun talks with Manchester United in extending the loan deal of goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Henderson has been one of the brightest players for Sheffield in their first season back in the Premier League and with David De Gea still the preferred first-choice keeper at Old Trafford, the English keeper might be at the club for foreseeable future.

Despite Sheffield United signing fellow goalkeeper Wes Foderingham earlier this week, Wilder said: “Dean and Manchester United know our views on that, we already have started talking to the player and Manchester United.

“It is their decision and the boy’s decision, we would love to extend that for another season and when we get the news on that decision we will let you know.

“Wes was available, we needed to strengthen that department, there will be a couple of changes going forward in that department. He became available, a free transfer and a three-year deal,” Wilder is quoted by the BBC via Manchester Evening News.

Henderson has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sheffield United and has been a key figure in the team as they aim to compete in Europe in the comings season.
