Dean Henderson reportedly wants to seal a January exit from Manchester United with three clubs interested in a loan transfer.
Henderson is aiming to keep his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad at next summer’s delayed European Championships and a lack of regular football at club level will surely be hindering his chances of selection.
The 23-year-old made his Three Lions debut during the international break, coming on as a substitute in the friendly victory over the Republic of Ireland.
And according to The Sun, Henderson would ‘jump at the chance’ of first-team football as he is currently not getting a look in under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Henderson had hoped to provide serious competition to David De Gea for the United number one jersey this season but the Spaniard has stepped up his performance levels after the youngster’s return from a superb loan spell at Sheffield United.
De Gea was arguably United’s man-of-the-match in the unconvincing victory over West Brom on Saturday evening, making two decisive saves.
Henderson will be under no illusions about a lack of game time and will not be short of options should a loan move be sanctioned.
The Sun add that Championship side Bournemouth are exploring the possibility of a temporary transfer, while Premier League sides Leeds United and Brighton are also interested parties.
Henderson will be frustrated that he is warming the bench at Old Trafford, particularly after his outstanding showings at Bramall Lane in the last campaign.
He has made three appearances in total this season and wouldn’t be begrudged by supporters should he push for a loan switch for regular football in the coming months.
