Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is reportedly prepared to stay and fight for his place, contrary to reports.

Henderson returned to Old Trafford after impressing on loan at Sheffield United with the intention of proving his worth to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 24-year-old appears to be the long-term solution between the sticks for Man United, with De Gea’s poor period of form the ideal time to pass the baton.

However, De Gea is now showing signs of getting back to his best, and according to The Sun, that has led to Henderson reconsidering his future.
