Sheffield United still hope to keep goalkeeper Dean Henderson beyond the end of the season.
The 23 year old is due to end his loan spell at Bramall Lane when the current campaign ends their next weekend, and United have already taken contingency steps by signing goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, who has joined the Blades on a free transfer after leaving Rangers at the end of May.
However, manager Chris Wilder would like to secure the services of Henderson for another loan spell, and the fact that he could be forced to spend next season on the bench behind De Gea could make Henderson prefer to stay in South Yorkshire. That is after Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reiterated his faith in the Spaniard despite his mitakes in the FA CUP semi-final against Chelsea.
Wilder is quite clear what he wants saying “we would love to extend that for another season”.
Henderson is amongst a host of names that has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as well, with Frank Lampard keen to find a replacement foi current incumbent Kepa Arrizabalaga. But now they are stalling on making any move for him, whilst United would not want to sell him to a direct rival.
