Sheffield United have to ensure 22-year-old is number one priority this summer: Opinion - Championship

Sheffield United completed a return to the Premier League last weekend with a 2-o home win over Ipswich Town.

The Blades beat Leeds United to the punch and at the time of writing, were still well within a shout of winning the Championship all together.

However, regardless of their excellent season this time around, next year will be a whole different ball game, and the summer is set to be a huge one for the Blades as they look to bring in new talent to ensure they maintain their place in the top flight.

One man who is desperate to sign and is heavily linked with a move to the club again is goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who was simply superb for United this year.

The 22-year-old England under-21 international is loved at Bramall Lane, and he simply has to be the player who Blades manager Chris Wilder ensures is first through the door.

Indeed, Wilder has admitted that talks are underway to bring Henderson back to the club, and he would be a huge boost to proceedings if he can return to Bramall Lane.

While his character is something what shines through, it is easy to forget that Henderson is indeed a quality operator in between the sticks, something his 21 clean sheets this season demonstrate.

Henderson has the potential to go down as one of the greats with Sheffield United if he can keep on his upward curve and play his part in keeping the club in the top flight, while for Man United, they could well have unearthed their number one for years to come if he can continue to develop.
