Manchester United will reject any bids for Dean Henderson in the summer, according to ESPN.
Sources told the outlet the Red Devils will instead look for another loan move for Henderson next season as they map out his future at Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old has spent the past two seasons on loan at Sheffield United, helping Chris Wilder’s side get promoted before playing a major role as they have mounted a charge up to the top end of the Premier League table this season. The United academy graduate has continued his fine run of form, making 27 appearances in the English top flight for the Blades, keeping 10 clean sheets, and conceding just 22 goals up until now. He is currently valued at £13m via Transfermarkt.
By comparison, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s designated number one goalkeeper David de Gea has played in 29 games, keeping only 8 clean sheets, and letting in 30 goals at the time of writing (Transfermarkt).
Henderson has made it clear he doesn’t want to be an understudy to the Spaniard so the board are working on a temporary deal. A return to Bramall Lane remains one of the options amid interest from a number of rivals.
As expected, loads of United fans raved over the youngster’s “perfect” transfer update, with one fan adding “there’s no better place than Sheffield.”

Perfect scenario in my opinion. People have short memories with Dave. Deserves another year then address the situation. No need to rush anything.
