Manchester United are reportedly yet to decide on Dean Henderson’s future next campaign after his loan with Sheffield United ended.

The MEN understands the 23-year-old is due to go on holiday later this week and talks are ongoing over his immediate future, with United ready to offer Henderson an improved contract.

United cannot register Dean for their Europa League roster ahead of the competition’s resumption next month.

Henderson started 36 times for his former club and finished joint-third in the PL clean sheets table on 13 – the same amount as United’s No1 David de Gea – as Sheffield United finished an impressive ninth in their first term back in the top flight for 12 years.

A source close to Dean told the MEN he is ‘desperate’ to play for the Red Devils but if they cannot assure him of a senior team place he will seek a move elsewhere.

Henderson is yet to make his debut for the club and is contracted to the club until June of 2022, with the option of an additional year.

The MEN revealed previous week Chelsea are prepared to more than double Dean’s wages but are not the only interested club.

Henderson currently earns around £70,000 per week but Sheffield United paid the majority of his salary during his PL loan and Chelsea are ready to entice him with £170,000 per week wages.

The MEN revealed in January Dean has no intention of just competing with De Gea and the 33-year-old Sergio Romero recently changed agents.

However, Manchester United board are willing to tie down Dean a new deal to reflect his Premier League and international status.
