Manchester United will let keeper Dean Henderson stay at Sheffield United until the end of the season.
According to reports from The Telegraph, Henderson’s deal was to end in the last day of June but after the league was suspended due to coronavirus, games are expected to continue past the month.
There had been rumours that United was not going to allow their young keeper to extend the loan with Chris Wilder’s men as they are both competing for European places.
Sheffield has had a perfect season in their return to the Premier League and are just two points below United on the table and would move two points below fourth-place Chelsea if they win their next game against Aston Villa.
With Manchester City facing expulsion from Europe next season due to a UEFA ban, the team that finishes in fifth place this season could qualify for the Champions League.
Henderson has been one of the standout keepers in the league this season with Liverpool being the only team with more clean sheets than his team.
The 24-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the league and has been tipped to be a long term successor of David De Gea at Old Trafford; the keeper saying earlier that his aim was to be United’s first-choice keeper in the future.
