Newcastle United not giving up attempts to sign Dean Henderson

Newcastle United are still reportedly holding talks with Manchester United over a deal for Dean Henderson.

The Magpies have been tracking the 25-year-old goalkeeper for some time after their attempts to sign him on loan in January came to nothing. Meanwhile, Henderson has been unable to get a look in ahead of David de Gea, despite signing a new long-term contract in 2020.

Henderson won’t want another season on the bench because he should be developing his game by challenging himself. It’s an extremely tough ask to improve whilst sat behind De Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Of course, United didn’t budge when it came to Henderson in January — just like we did with Jesse Lingard back then too…

According to 90min, talks are continuing between the two clubs, with an agreement over whether it will be a loan deal or permanent move yet to be decided.

It would cost a lot to prize Henderson away on a permanent deal because there is still a chance of him having a bright future at United.

The upcoming season will see De Gea challenged like never before since Ten Hag is a manager who demands his keeper to play out from the back, which could be an issue for the Spaniard.

Let us know in the comments section if you think United should hold onto Henderson this season or let him leave on loan?

  1. Mark Harrison says:

    De Gea contract runs until 30th June 2023 (although there is an option of an extra year). Accordingly, the best for Manchester United is a one year loan (a suitable fee will help as well) and Henderson then returns to become NO. 1
