Newcastle plan fresh move for Man Utd goalkeeper Dean Henderson

Newcastle United are planning a fresh approach for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer, according to the Northern Echo.

Henderson was linked with a late loan move to the Magpies in January, but a deal reportedly did not materialise after Martin Dubravka refused to move in the opposite direction.

It is now claimed that the Tyneside club remain keen on landing Henderson. They will seek to sign him on a permanent deal when the transfer window reopens.

Our view:

Henderson had superb two seasons on loan at Sheffield United. The latter of those saw the Blades finish ninth following a long-awaited Premier League return.

He was fancied to step to the next level to become United’s first-choice keeper. The £100,000-a-week star was a regular during the final months of last season, but has hardly played this term.

David de Gea’s form had been pretty average over the previous few campaigns, but the Spaniard has had a renaissance this season, producing several stand-out performances.

While there remains the debate over his footwork and aerial ability, De Gea has been exceptional with his reflexes, single-handedly winning points with several key saves this season.

He could still be replaced in the future, but reports suggest that the club are looking into a new signing from abroad rather than trusting Henderson with the number one position.

Hence, it won’t be a surprise if the 25-year-old looks to leave United for good. The Magpies have an exciting project, and Henderson could establish himself as the first-choice goalkeeper.

With the World Cup this winter, Henderson will still be hoping to make the England squad with regular minutes. His international prospects should only improve if he can replicate the showing from his Sheffield days.
