Dean Henderson rejected Erik ten Hag’s proposal to return to Man United in January

Dean Henderson turned down Erik ten Hag’s proposal to return to Manchester United in January, reports The Athletic.

The Red Devils manager was without a third goalkeeper at the time after Newcastle United recalled Martin Dubravka.

Ten Hag wanted Henderson to end his season-long loan at Nottingham Forest and return to Man United to challenge David de Gea.

However, the 26-year-old decided remaining at the City Ground club was better for him.

Henderson had played 20 games across all competitions for Nottingham before getting injured in January.

He was unwilling to swap that for a place on the Man United bench.

The Red Devils eventually brought in Jack Butland, who is yet to taste action since joining.

Henderson’s Man United future would depend on David de Gea’s.

The Spaniard is out of contract in 2024, but talks are ongoing over an extension.

The 32-year-old remains a key player under the Dutchman, which is unlikely to change soon.

Henderson has two years left on his deal, and Man United could see the next transfer window as their best chance to sell him.

Two clubs have contacted them over a permanent transfer, and Tottenham Hotspur have been regularly linked with an interest.

Forest want to sign him permanently but will need to stay up to do so.

Henderson will not be short of suitors in the summer, and a permanent exit could be best for both parties.
