Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has agreed a new loan deal at Sheffield United
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean View pictures in App save up to 80% data. Henderson has agreed a new loan deal at Sheffield United, according to the Mirror.
Henderson has spent the last two seasons on loan at the Blades, his first helping his side win promotion back to the Premier League and this season go beyond all expectations in the Premier League.
Like nearly all loan players, and other players out of contract, Henderson’s current loan deal was expected to expire at the end of June.
This has caused major panic for many clubs and players with the season being extended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The two teams were very close in the table when lockdown began, both with a very realistic chance of a Champions League spot. However, due to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beating Sheffield United 3-o at Old Trafford last week, the gap now stands at five points.
Tis has prompted the Manchester giants to agree the extension of Henderson until the end of the season.
A Sheffield United statement read: “Goalkeeper Dean Henderson will remain at Bramall Lane until the end of the season, after a deal was struck with Manchester United following prolonged discussions between the respective parties in recent weeks.”

Angel Gomes has failed to agree a new deal with Manchester United and is set to quit the club, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has announced.
Gomes, who has been mentioned with a move to Chelsea, has been locked in contract talks with the club for months but little progress has been made.
And with his existing deal set to expire tomorrow, Solskjaer admitted the academy product is set to leave. ‘I’ve got no news – nothing. So it doesn’t look it,‘ Ole said.
‘I’ve not heard from them (the club) last night or this morning, so it seems like they haven’t managed to agree. So the answer is probably short and yes (he’s going to leave).’
Gomes has long been considered as one of the most talented prospects in the club’s academy.
He has only appeared twice off the bench in the PL this season while starting three times in the UEFA Europa League.
The lack of senior team football, accompanied by the landing of Bruno Fernandes and the pursuit of Jack Grealish, is understood to be the main reason behind his concerns about committing his future to Old Trafford.
United senior figures were thought to have tabled a £30,000 per week offer for the 19-year-old.
Chelsea and Barcelona have both been touted with an interest and will be able to sign him on a free transfer, should no deal be agreed with the Red Devils before the end of the month.
In other news, Manchester United will allegedly have to offload at least four first-team stars during this summer’s transfer window to fund a big-money swoop for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

Arsenal were once widely recognised for nurturing young talent and fast-tracking them into the first-team.
The likes of Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Cesc Fabregas and Kieran Gibbs are just some of the starlets who became regulars under former boss Arsene Wenger.
This stance has altered somewhat in recent years though, with the Gunners getting out the cheque book to seal deals for proven talents such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Bernd Leno.
Matteo Guendouzi has come in and shown glimpses of his potential in the first team, while Bukayo Saka has also been a rare shining light during what has been another disappointing campaign for the Gunners.
And as they build towards a brighter future under Mikel Arteta’s stewardship, they will be looking to blood some more youngsters.
It doesn’t appear as though highly-rated academy striker Folarin Balogun will be one of them though, with the Athletic reporting that the 18-year-old forward will leave the Emirates in the next transfer window after failing to agree a new deal.
Championship promotion chasers Brentford had a £5million bid in January turned down for Balogun, whose current deal runs out in June 2021.
It seems inexcusable that the Gunners should let go of yet another young star, especially as they’ve lost four exciting youngsters over the course of the last four campaigns, with Balogun set to join that growing list.
So, what happened to the likes of Serge Gnabry, Ismael Bennacer, Donyell Malen, and Jeff Reine-Adelaide after leaving Arsenal? talkSPORT.com takes a look below…
Big things were expected from Bennacer when he joined the Gunners from Ligue 2 side AC Arles-Avignon in 2015.
However, the midfielder was unable to make the breakthrough at the Emirates – making just one first-team appearance – and subsequently joined Empoli on a permanent deal two years later.
The Gunners inserted a buy-back clause inserted into the sale, meaning they had the right to match any accepted bid for the young midfielder to re-sign him.
However, they passed up on that opportunity with Serie A giants AC Milan clinching a £14.5m deal for the Algeria international last summer.
The 22-year-old signed a five-year deal at the San Siro, with Arsenal reportedly recouping 30 per cent of that fee through a sell-on clause.
Such is his talent, Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with making a move for Bennacer, but Milan are not expected to entertain any interest in their midfielder.

Everton has been alerted by the potential availability of Burnley winger Dwight McNeil.
Jadon Sancho is one name that is being discussed in the offices of Manchester City and Manchester United. However, he is not the one we are talking about. Everton are set to battle the two Manchester powerhouses for Burnley starlet Dwight McNeil.
The bright English winger is one of the emerging stars at Burnley and bigger teams have not failed to notice his uprising. According to the Daily Mail, Clarets boss Sean Dyche recently admitted that due to the stringent financial budgets, Burnley might be forced to sell one of their best prospects. The corona virus has seen a number of clubs plunging into financial turmoil and Burnley are no exceptions to that.
