Dean Henderson has made quite the impact during his spell at Sheffield United.
Is Chris Wilder too harsh on his teams sometimes?
The 22-year-old goalkeeper initially joined the club on loan from Manchester United for the 2018/19 season and was a key man as the Blades won automatic promotion from the Championship, keeping 21 clean sheets and winning the Golden Glove award.
He has since rejoined the South Yorkshire club for a second loan spell in the Premier League this term, where once again he has been impressive overall despite his recent error against Liverpool.
He is extremely highly thought of at Bramall Lane, both by the fans and manager Chris Wilder who recently described him as the “best young goalkeeper in the country.”
They would have been intrigued to learn therefore, that there is a possibility that Manchester United may be willing to allow the young stopper to leave Old Trafford on a permanent basis next summer for around £20m.
Should the Blades stay up, then they would surely be interested in buying Henderson if he becomes available, assuming that he is within their price range. (via the Sun)
The Sheffield United fans would certainly love to see the England under-21 international pen a long-term deal with the club, with several on Twitter suggesting that they should sign him whatever the cost.
Here is how some fans have reacted to the news that Henderson may be available next summer…
Dont care just buy him

I’ve seen enough of Deano to say that I’d be more than happy to sign him at £20M. Yes, he has a mistake in him. Yes, his distribution can sometimes be poor. But he’s saved us more times than he’s cost us points, he’s young and will only get better, AND he loves the club. ⚔🔴⚫⚪

I would also buy at that price and agree hell get England cap(s). Do you think hell oust Pope (27), Pickford (25), young in goalkeeper terms to be the number 1? Im not totally convinced he will. Pope the best imo currently. Others all made 2+ mistakes so far this season to

Couple years as a prem GK, ironing out the mistakes in his game and he’ll be worth more than twice that amount with how crazy the big clubs go for UK talent. Man U will probs put a buy back clause in there.

100% Agree should have done it before now !! BUT will we ? Let’s hope the Prince brings the💰💰& investment into the football side of the club instead of the property 🤷♂️
