The deal also has repercussions elsewhere in the Man Utd squad, with young ‘keeper Dean Henderson now cleared to complete his loan back to Sheffield United, according to the Telegraph.

David de Gea looks set to sign a new Manchester United contract, allowing Dean Henderson to go out on loan

Henderson will now get his chance to show what he can do in the top flight, with the Telegraph reporting that United rate him highly as a potential future number one.

Red Devils fans will be pleased to see De Gea staying for now, however, as on his day he’s quite possibly the best in the world in his position.

Henderson should benefit from a bit more time out on loan before properly challenging De Gea for his place, though the Telegraph do note that Bayern Munich had shown some interest in the youngster.
