It looks like Sheffield United are preparing for a future without Dean Henderson as they have reportedly shown a serious interest in Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, for whom a bid is believed to have been submitted.
Sheffield United sold the former England under-21 international to Bournemouth back in 2017, and with this first bid rejected, it is currently unsure whether they will make another offer or look elsewhere for a potential successor to Henderson.
At 22, Ramsdale is still very young for a goalkeeper and it will be a tough ask to replace Henderson, who had the joint-third most clean sheets in the Premier League last term, picking up 13 in 36 appearances and only conceding 33 goals, per Transfermarkt.
However, Ramsdale is a very good option for the club, and he clearly impressed last season at the Vitality Stadium, as the Bournemouth Echo awarded him with the Cherries’ Player of the Year prize.
Despite Bournemouth being relegated from the Premier League, the goalkeeper was one of a few who still shone under Eddie Howe as he kept five clean sheets and made 129 saves, the third-highest in the Premier League, in what was his debut campaign in the English top flight.
The 22-year-old has definitely shown that he has the potential to be a solid Premier League goalkeeper and, if the Blades cannot get Henderson back from Manchester United, then Ramsdale would be a very good replacement.
Blades fans, would you be happy with the signing of Ramsdale? Comment below with your views!
