Manchester United have persuaded the in-demand Dean Henderson to remain at Old Trafford.
That’s according to the Daily Mirror, who adds that the goalkeeper has verbally agreed to a new two-year deal with the Red Devils.
The 21-year-old is set to snub offers aplenty this summer, following heightened interest in him after an excellent campaign for Shrewsbury Town in League One.
His contract at United is set to run out in just a few weeks, but to hear that Henderson looks set to remain at the club is an excellent little boost.
Personally, I’d love to see him given his opportunity within the first-team – preferably as a back-up to David de Gea. He’s shown he has the talent to perform week-in-week-out, and now it’s time for that effort to be rewarded.
At the end of the day, at some point, we’re going to need to identify a replacement for the aforementioned De Gea. Who knows, the next man in line could already be on the books at the club. As the old saying goes, you don’t know until you’ve tried, and Henderson should get his opportunity. Pre-season tour would be an excellent starting point.
