According to 90min, Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is keen to leave the club in January after a conversation with England boss Gareth Southgate.

The report claims Southgate has warned Henderson that he can’t be England number one goalkeeper if he isn’t playing regularly at club level.

Scottish giants Celtic are an option for Dean Henderson and United are prepared to sanction another loan for the goalkeeper.

“United appreciate Henderson staying put but they know he is now being held back and needs another loan, although that may not be easy but they are willing to work hard on securing him a move,” a source with knowledge of the situation told 90min.

If Henderson does move on loan in January, United still have Sergio Romero on the books after denying the Argentine a move in summer, although he is also actively looking to leave.
