Celtic interested in signing Man United keeper Dean Henderson on a loan deal

Scottish giants Celtic is open to welcoming Manchester United Goalkeeper Dean Henderson albeit on a short term loan deal.

With Jordan Pickford a worry for England, manager Gareth Southgate would want to give Henderson more chances with the national team but the fact that he isn’t playing regularly for his club doesn’t do him any favours.

Daily Star now reports that the player is keen to be England’s first choice and will be willing to move out on loan in January and Celtic is a perfect destination for him with the Neil Lennon side looking to shore up their defence with the team already adrift of arch-rivals Rangers.

Reporter Ollie Salt, as quoted by the tabloid, claims that Celtic have Henderson in their sights.

“Hoops boss Neil Lennon has not settled on a goalkeeper this season, consistently rotating between summer signing Vasilis Barkas and Scott Bain.

“Henderson could help the Scottish champions get their faltering title defence back on track, having fallen nine points behind arch-rivals Rangers after conceding 11 goals in their first 12 games of the campaign,” he said.

United are relaxed in letting Henderson leave since Sergio Romero is not in their plans and the departure of the keeper might force the club to find another keeper to fill the void midway through the season.
