Man Utd reach agreement to sell Dean Henderson to Crystal Palace

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Crystal Palace for the permanent sale of Dean Henderson, according to reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Henderson’s future has been constantly speculated throughout the summer, and the Red Devils have finally agreed to sanction his departure on a permanent basis.

A fee of £20 million with add-ons has been finalised with the Eagles. The south London outfit have also accepted to include a sell-on clause as part of the transfer deal.

The United graduate will undergo a medical with Roy Hodgson’s side today. The Red Devils are expected to sign Fenerbahce’s Altay Bayindir as his replacement soon.

United have made the right decision with Henderson

The 26-year-old spent the previous campaign on loan with Nottingham Forest, and he made it clear that he wanted regular playing time during the prime of his career.

Henderson was an unused substitute in United’s first three Premier League games this season, but it was always anticipated that he would leave the club before the deadline.

Nottingham Forest were much fancied to re-sign him, but they cooled their interest after landing Matt Turner. Henderson now has the opportunity to play for another club.

Palace currently have Sam Johnstone as their number one, but Henderson is likely to replace him between the sticks. Johnstone could make the move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Meanwhile, Bayindir is set to become Andre Onana’s deputy at United. The goalkeeper has already travelled to Manchester to complete the main part of his medical.

His arrival could be announced by the Red Devils as soon as Henderson heads for the exit door.

The 25-year-old should be a good buy for United. He is a modern goalkeeper similar to Onana and has impressed with his distribution and sweeper-keeper skills.
