Sheffield United’s hopes of securing Dean Henderson on a permanent deal may have taken a blow.
Sources at ESPN claim that Manchester United are contemplating offering the goalkeeper fresh terms.
Henderson only put pen to paper on a new contract with his parent club in July 2019, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2022, with Manchester United also holding a 12-month extension option.
However, the 23-year-old’s impressive campaign in his first Premier League season has encouraged the Red Devils to consider tabling an improved offer.
The stopper has made no secret of his desire to challenge David De Gea for a starting spot at Manchester United and establish himself as the club’s number 1.
The Blades’ impressive defensive record sees them boast the fewest goals conceded in the top flight this season aside from runaway leaders Liverpool.
Any improved contract offer Henderson signs will almost certainly increase his sale value, making it trickier for Chris Wilder to permanently secure a player who has been a key cog in his side since 2018.
