Dean Henderson is expected to finish the ongoing campaign at Bramall Lane, according to a statement on Sheffield United’s official website.
The 23 year old was due to return to Old Trafford at the end of June, following the expiration of the initial loan agreement between Manchester United and Sheffield.
However, the suspension of the league, due to the outbreak of coronavirus has effectively made sure the season is extended beyond the usual duration, and by extension, the loan period of some of our players.
The statement on Sheffield’s website reads: “Chris Wilder has finalised his squad for the remainder of the current extended Premier League campaign. Goalkeeper Dean Henderson will remain at Bramall Lane until the end of the season.”
Henderson has been one of the best in the league, and is rumoured to be a subject of interest from some of the league’s top sides including Chelsea, who want to use him as competition for the inconsistent Kepa Arrizabalga.
