Henderson signs new contract at United

Dean Henderson has signed a new contract with Manchester United that will run until at least June 2020, with the option of a further year.

The highly rated goalkeeper is an England Under-21 international and enjoyed a wonderful loan spell with Shrewsbury Town last season. Although losing out on promotion due to a play-off final defeat to Rotherham United, when he performed superbly at Wembley, the youngster was named in the PFA League One Team of the Season by his peers.

After previous stints with Stockport County and Grimsby Town, he has thrived on first-team football in pressurised situations, and was hugely popular with the Shrews' supporters.

“I'm really delighted,” he told MUTV. “Coming off the back of last season and playing games at Shrewsbury and having a good season there, to return to the biggest club in the world and put pen-to-paper again is a great achievement for me and my family. It's another dream come true.

”Obviously, there was a lot of interest after last season, when I've done myself well going out and playing but, look, United are the biggest club in the world and have been my club since day one so, of course, they are always first in my mind.

“All my family are here with me now and it's an honour. To come from where we started from, from nothing, to come all this way is fantastic and I'm just really delighted.”
