Dean Henderson will remain at Sheffield United until the end of the current season after a deal was struck to extend his loan from Manchester United.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper was due to return to his parent club upon the expiry of his temporary deal on Tuesday, but he will now remain at Bramall Lane until the conclusion of the extended campaign.
‘Henderson ready to be Man Utd’s No 1’
Henderson has been outstanding for the Blades as they have mounted a surprise challenge for European football during their first season back in the Premier League.
He has kept 11 clean sheets and featured in all but two of Sheffield United’s games, with his performances earning him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s senior England squad in October 2019.
Henderson signed a new contract at Old Trafford last summer after helping the Blades to Championship promotion and has been tipped by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be Manchester United and England’s future No 1.
