Manchester United: Red Devils ‘will take a decision’ on Dean Henderson at end of season

Manchester United: Red Devils 'will take a decision' on Dean Henderson at end of season - Manchester United News

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has admitted that the club ‘will take a decision’ on the future of Dean Henderson at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Lowdown: Goalkeeper latest

The goalkeeper joined Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan over the summer and has made an impressive start to life at the City Ground.

David de Gea has reportedly entered talks regarding a new long-term contract with United, which has raised questions surrounding the 25-year-old’s role, although the manager has now delivered a fresh update.

The Latest: Ten Hag’s comments

Speaking prior to Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Forest, Ten Hag revealed that Henderson’s future at Old Trafford will be assessed next summer.

Quoted by Manchester Evening News, the 52-year-old said: “No, I wouldn’t give that decision already now. I think he is on a loan for one season. During the season, when the season is coming to an end, we will take a decision and that depends on a lot of factors. He is playing really well at Nottingham Forest.”

The Verdict: Don’t let him go

Henderson has almost always played second fiddle to De Gea at Old Trafford, aside from a brief spell in 2020/21, but United should keep hold of him given how efficient he can be between the sticks.

The England international has recorded 13 clean sheets in just 29 senior appearances for the Red Devils, not to mention that he still has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal with the club.

Dubbed ‘awesome’ by former Sheffield United team-mate Sander Berge, the shot-stopper will have a point to prove upon his return to Manchester, and an accomplished 2022/23 season could help him to force his way into Ten Hag’s plans moving forward.
