Sheffield United want to keep Man United's Dean Henderson

Sheffield United are reportedly keen on keeping Dean Henderson at Bramall Lane before heads off to the U21 European Championships in June according to The Star. 

The Manchester United goalkeeper spent the entire 2018/19 season on loan at Sheffield and proved to make the difference managing to keep 21 clean sheets to seal Chris Wilder's side return to the Premier League after a 12-year hiatus. 

It is however not surprising that The Blades would want to offer Henderson another deal - either another season-long loan or a potential permanent deal.

The Sun suggested that Sheffield would have to fork out a club-record £7 million fee to sign the 22-year-old shot-stopper.

Whatever the details of the deal, Sheffield United want to get it signed and sealed before England’s U21s take on France in their European Championship qualifier on June 18. The tournament starts three days earlier, on June 15.

Henderson has earned six caps for England at U21 level and it remains to be seen whether he starts between the sticks for Aidy Boothroyd in San Marino.

He will face competition from Southampton’s Angus Gunn and Newcastle United youngster Freddie Woodman.
