According to the Manchester Evening News, a deal to move Henderson from Manchester United to Newcastle United is in the works.
Dean Henderson, the goalie for Manchester United, is on his way to Newcastle United. Henderson, 25, was said to be in Newcastle for talks on Wednesday.
It is known that talks have taken place over a season-long loan, but a permanent deal has not been ruled out. Newcastle is still interested in Henderson, according to the Manchester Evening News, as they look to strengthen their team for next season.
Newcastle was in talks to sign Henderson on loan on January 31st, but the deal fell through after incumbent first choice Martin Dubravka rejected a move to United in a mooted exchange agreement. Ajax was interested in loaning Henderson to United during the January transfer window, but new United manager Erik ten Hag looks to have decided to keep David de Gea as the club’s starting goalkeeper.
Henderson has only appeared three times for United this season, none of which have been in the Premier League.
The academy graduate was set to start the season for United until he was diagnosed with Covid-19 during his first week of pre-season training in July. Henderson’s illness left him so weakened that he missed the start of the season and was unavailable for selection until September.
Tom Heaton agreed to rejoin United on the condition that one of the two main goalkeepers go, with the club hinting that De Gea was the most likely to leave.
Henderson’s illness allowed De Gea to begin the season without competition, making crucial stops against Southampton and Wolves in United’s second and third games. De Gea has a chance to win Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for a record fifth time.
