Manchester United could spark the interest of a three-club star in January, while Manchester City are keen on new contracts for a key pair – all in the latest TBEN.
HENDERSON WANTS A UTD MAN LOAN
Manchester United Goalkeeper Dean Henderson wants to leave the club on loan in January, according to a report.
The 23-year-old has only played three times since returning to Old Trafford in recent months. But he is yet to make his Premier League debut, with No.1 firm David from Gea United.
Indeed, his only appearances were in the Carabao Cup and the Champions League. But should United advance in both competitions, it is likely that De Gea will retain his place.
As such, Thea Sunday says Henderson would “jump at” the chance to gain more playing time. The stopper’s main concern is his place in the England squad.
The goalkeeper won his first cap recently but knows that without playing time Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate could look elsewhere.
Additionally, the diary notes three other players who could eventually take his place. Aaron Ramsdale of Sheffield United, Sam Johnstone of Aston Villa and Alex McCarthy of Southampton all play Premier League football.
As such, Henderson would “ kick in ” and become “ impatient ”.
As to where he might move, Sun Sunday say that Leeds and Brighton might look a hit. Bournemouth has also recorded initial interest.
But while the Red Devils may face a battle to keep Henderson in January, it is United who will have the final say on their future.
