Sheffield United extend Henderson loan deal

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson's loan deal with Sheffield United has been extended until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old was due to return to his parent club upon the expiry of his temporary deal on 30 June, but he will now remain at Bramall Lane until the conclusion of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Henderson has excelled during his maiden season in the top-flight, keeping 11 clean sheets and featuring in all but two of the Blades' games as they seek to secure European football for the first time in their history.

Due to Premier League rules around playing against parent clubs, Dean was ineligible for the fixtures against United - a 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane in November, and last week's 3-0 victory at Old Trafford.

The Whitehaven-born stopper signed a new contract at Old Trafford last summer after helping the Blades to Championship promotion.

He was also rewarded for his performances in South Yorkshire with a call-up to Gareth Southgate's senior England squad in October 2019.
