Manchester United have agreed a new contract with goalkeeper Dean Henderson which would keep him at the club until 2022. The 22-year-old has re-joined Sheffield United in a loan deal for next season.
The English goalie was quick to share his excitement about the deal on United’s official website:
“To commit my future to the club I love, it’s the best thing in the world. Throughout it’s been put into my blood. From the day I joined to me sitting here now, I’ve learnt a lot since I came here. I’ve grown into a man and I’m really thankful for everything that the club has done for me.
“It’s always been my dream to break through into the first team since I was a little boy of four or five years old – all I ever thought about was playing at Manchester United.
“So, for me to sit here today and say it’s getting closer and closer, every year it gets closer but you’ve got to keep doing the right things and making sure you’re professional and making sure you make the sacrifices.
“Hopefully one day you’ll get your lucky break and then it’s obviously down to myself to take that and I’m ready when they are. I’ll always stick by it. I’ve always wanted to play for Manchester United and be England’s number one.
“I’m on the right tracks if I keep developing the way I’m doing and I get a lucky break because I’ll need a bit of luck along the way. If I get that bit of luck, then I’m sure I will get there in the end.”
