There’s been non-stop reports about Dean Henderson’s future going into the transfer window.
As second choice goalkeeper, the Academy graduate did not get enough playing time (3 appearances) this season, and I would begin to worry about Henderson’s development if the shot-stopper was expected to spend another full season on the bench at Old Trafford.
However, Henderson emerged as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice keeper at the end of last season, but an injury sustained with England coupled with disruption to pre-season due to COVID-19 has halted his progressions.
The 25-year-old signed a new long-term contract in 2020 but he could try to force a move out of the club this summer. Either way, it’s down to the club.
On Thursday, the Manchester Evening News ran a report stating that Newcastle were closing in on a move to Newcastle, after holding talks with the Magpies on Wednesday. Discussions took place over a season-long loan, but a permanent transfer has not been ruled out.
Contrary to that, Luke Edwards of The Telegraph covers Newcastle and claims that Henderson will not be joining Newcastle anytime soon, which suggestions there may have been a breakdown in negotiations.
