Semoga kelak bisa menjadi kiper utama United yang tangguh :)



ManUtd.com takes a closer look at Dean Henderson as the highly-rated young goalkeeper returns to Manchester United ahead of Monday's Emirates FA Cup tie with Shrewsbury Town...


One of the stand-out performers in last season’s Academy team, Henderson has made a positive impression as he bids to make a regular step up to reserve-team football and has benefited from a loan spell at Stockport County. The no.1 in Nicky Butt’s UEFA Youth League side earlier this season, he joined the club as a 14-year-old from Carlisle United after impressing then goalkeeping coach Eric Steele during a trial. Already six feet two inches tall, the 18-year-old feels he is still growing as he becomes an imposing figure between the posts.


Working with top-class goalkeepers at United is providing invaluable experience for Henderson and he is in the right place to obtain the perfect education. Training with Victor Valdes before the Spaniard joined Standard Liege on loan was a personal highlight and he regularly studies David De Gea. “Victor and I are almost friends now which I would have never have thought was possible two years ago! I learned from him every single day and he’s such a nice bloke to have to look up to. David is one of the best, if not the best, goalkeepers in the world and I go to as many games at Old Trafford as I can to watch him. I also get to watch him in training and it's fantastic to see what he puts in place when he's preparing for games.”


An excellent goalkeeper who is working on all aspects of his game, Henderson looks commanding when dealing with crosses and often manages to exert a vocal influence on his defenders. Although an outfield player in his youth, he enjoys “diving around in the mud in the wet and cold” and clearly made the right career choice. Particularly adept at launching attacks with long throws, he commented: “I watched a lot of clips of Peter Schmeichel on YouTube and thought throwing is a really good skill to have in your locker. It can be as effective as a big, long kick as it’s sharp and you can get on the break. I’ll keep working at it.”


His first appearance for United Reserves against Rochdale in the Lancashire Senior Cup back in September was one to savour. Warren Joyce's side won 3-2 and Henderson made a number of top-class saves to preserve the lead, with the pick of the bunch being an agile close-range stop to deny Joe Bunney and draw gasps from the crowd.


Despite the outstanding display against Rochdale, Henderson himself feels his finest showing came in a 1-0 win against Derby County at Under-18 level in February 2015. In a game best remembered for Oli Rathbone’s stupendous injury-time winner, the United keeper made a string of saves. “I felt we were struggling and under pressure at Derby but I helped hold the team together," he said.


As a schoolboy, Dean played county cricket and was an accomplished batsman and wicket-keeper. However, since making his way in football, he has understandably had no time to continue playing the other sport.

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been recalled from a loan spell at Stockport County following injuries to fellow shot-stoppers David De Gea and Sam Johnstone.

Henderson, who turns 19 next month, has been gaining first-team experience in the Conference North but could now be involved in United's senior squad for Monday's Emirates FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town.

The Reds are likely to need cover for Sergio Romero, who performed well during the 2-1 defeat to FC Midtjylland after De Gea hurt his knee in the warm-up and joined Johnstone on the lengthy list of Louis van Gaal's unavailable players.

Another goalkeeper, Joel Castro Pereira, is ineligible for Monday's match having already played in the FA Cup this season during his temporary spell at Rochdale while Victor Valdes is on loan at Standard Liege.

Sayangnya selama ini kiper utama United jarang yang berasal dari youngster academy. Lebih sering kiper utama dibeli dari klub lain. Semoga saja Dean Henderson bisa membuktikan bahwa dia layak mengawal gawang tim utama United di masa depan :)

Kemungkinan sih bakal jadi cadangan dulu jika Dean Henderson dipanggil ke tim utama United untuk ajang piala FA besok. Van Gaal tentunya tidak mau ambil resiko mengingat posisi dirinya yang tengah terancam di klub..

Dean Henderson was in dreamland in February when he was recalled from a loan spell at Stockport County in order to make the bench for United's FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town.

With Joel Castro Pereira cup-tied after participating in the competition during a stint at Rochdale, it opened the door for Henderson, who was only 18 at the time. For all the excitement, having met and talked to the young keeper, it is probably something he would have taken in his stride.

A confident, assured figure with the belief in his ability that is required to make it at the top level, Henderson has the character that suggests his competitive nature will take him a long way. Whether it's studying YouTube clips of Peter Schmeichel or scrutinising David De Gea in training, he appears to be obsessed with the art of goalkeeping.

It's often said to be a lonely position but there is a special bond among the goalies at any club. "I think we do always help each other off the pitch but, on the pitch, it's the most competitive place to be," he asserted. "I definitely need to keep on top of the gym work to be more powerful and have more speed. I need to maintain that to get to the top."

It all started at Carlisle United for Henderson when he switched from playing on the right wing or up front when an illness for the regular keeper in a schoolboy game at Blackpool presented an opening. "I went in net and saved a couple of penalties," he recalled. "The next thing they wanted me in sticks and I wasn't too happy but I started diving around in the mud, enjoyed it and went from there.

"I spoke with my mum and dad, and they were worried I'd lose any potential to be an outfield player but, personally, I liked diving in the wet and cold and just sliding around. I came to United when I was 14 years old and had a couple of trial games. [Then goalkeeping coach] Eric Steele brought me in and was very good with me.

"I was really nervous but excited at the same time, coming to one of the biggest clubs in the world and someone I'd supported. I signed in the summer. At first, being a northern lad, it's a bit isolated up there in Carlisle, I found it difficult being in a big city like Manchester on my own at 14 but I had good people around to support and help me along the way.

"People like Scott McTominay, Joe Riley and Oli Rathbone took me under their wing and helped me through the early months at the club. As you grow older, you become one of the regulars yourself to help other people and the new lads coming in."

Competition is always fierce for a goalkeeping spot - he was one of five to be named on the first-team bench last term with Sam Johnstone, Sergio Romero, De Gea and Pereira the others. Henderson made two appearances for Warren Joyce's Reserves side, both in the Lancashire Senior Cup, and was named captain for the win at Blackpool to reflect his outgoing personality. Always very vocal during games, he was the first choice in the UEFA Youth League but suffered an injury during the defeat to PSV Eindhoven in November that proved a real setback.

When regaining his fitness, he headed out to Stockport for experience and did well enough to have the deal extended, being voted Man of the Match in a 0-0 draw with Curzon Ashton. The recall from United came as a result of De Gea sustaining an injury before the Midtjylland tie in the Europa League tie and, although a remarkable debut never materialised, the shock development will have shown Henderson just how quickly opportunities can arise in the game.
The challenge now will be to force his way into Joyce's side on a regular basis, buoyed by the knowledge that he performed well in his Lancashire Cup outings - against Rochdale and Blackpool - making a number of fine stops. He was substitute on 11 occasions in the Under-21 league and, after displaying patience, will be determined to show he can step up in 2016/17, regardless of what the future holds.

Physically, he should become even more imposing, which will only help his cause. "Funnily enough, my Dad is about 6ft 4ins, my Mum is 6ft and my brother is a tall lad. So I was always confident I'd be tall enough. I've just got to 6ft 2ins but a few of my growth plates are still open so, hopefully, I'll keep going maybe another inch or so," he declared during our interview earlier in the season.

Like any youngster at Old Trafford, the teenager is fully aware how difficult it is to become a first-team regular - and even more so for a keeper. The last youth product to become the regular no.1 was Mark Bosnich and even he had to prove himself elsewhere at Aston Villa before returning to Manchester under the Bosman Ruling.

But Henderson is obviously willing to play the long game. "I’ve got the same ambitions as the boys at United, 100 per cent," he vowed. "With the goalkeeping situation, it’ll take a few more years. Obviously David is the best in the world, and at the moment I’m learning a lot from him."

Dean Henderson has signed for Grimsby Town on loan until January.

The Manchester United goalkeeper, who was named in the England Under-20 squad last week, will obtain valuable experience with the League Two newcomers after the Mariners gained promotion last term.

Henderson kept goal for United's Under-23 side in the Premier League 2 clash at Southampton recently but has been allowed to develop his game away from Manchester.

Following a loan stint at Stockport County, the 19-year-old was recalled in order to be on the bench for the FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town during Louis van Gaal's time in charge.

Mungkin butuh waktu dan perjuangan berat bagi Dean Henderson untuk dapat menjadi kiper utama United, terlebih De Gea juga masih muda namun memiliki banyak pengalaman. Jalan terbaik bagi Dean Henderson adalah tampil sebaik mungkin selama masa peminjamannya. Siapa tahu Mourinho menariknya kembali untuk menjadi kiper di ajang Piala Liga atau Piala FA :)

Young Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has extended his loan deal at Grimsby Town until the end of January.

The goalkeeper joined the Mariners on an initial deal lasting until January and made his full professional debut against Accrington Stanley on Boxing Day.

The Reds stopper, who was named in the England Under-20 squad back in August, will continue his spell with the League Two newcomers after the Mariners gained promotion last term.

Dean Henderson has been recalled from his loan spell at Grimsby Town due to Manchester United's third-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira suffering an injury.

Henderson, 19, is eligible to be included in Jose Mourinho's match squad for Sunday's Premier League match at Leicester City if required. The Cumbria-born shot-stopper has not previously played for the first team with the Reds but he has made seven senior appearances for Grimsby in League Two this season, impressively keeping clean sheets in three of his last four outings in January.

The Mariners initially signed Henderson on 31 August in a loan deal lasting until January and he made his full professional debut in the 2-0 home win over Accrington Stanley on Boxing Day.

Such was his impact that Grimsby asked to keep Henderson at Blundell Park until 6 May but although that was agreed on 25 January, today's recall has brought his loan extension to an abrupt end.

Wah Dean Henderson dipinjamkan terus nih :)



Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan for the 2017/18 season.

Henderson, who was part of the England squad that won the Under-20 World Cup in the summer, has been a regular for United’s Reserves and was on the first-team bench for the Emirates FA Cup win at Blackburn Rovers in February.

The 20-year-old also spent time on loan at Grimsby Town last season, keeping four clean sheets in seven League Two appearances before being recalled by the Reds after Joel Pereira suffered an injury.

Henderson will link up with his new side on Tuesday ahead of their pre-season campaign, which includes fixtures against Aston Villa, Cardiff City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“I’m delighted to come here,” the Cumbria-born stopper told Shewsbury’s official website. “I could have gone to a lot of League Two clubs this year, but I had to show that development and go into the next league.

“I will be working hard every day in training and hopefully performing well in the games before the season starts. I’ve left no stones unturned, so I’m ready.”

Shrews boss Paul Hurst brought Henderson to Grimsby last August, though all of the youngster’s appearances came after the manager had moved to Shrewsbury.

“He’s a keeper with a big future in front of him and he will be looking to take this opportunity to really kick on and progress his career,” Hurst said.

“He kicks the ball extremely well. He’s probably one of the most confident characters I have met, he will come for crosses and he likes to be proactive in terms of his approach to his goalkeeping.

“He did well at Grimsby last season after I’d left and he got himself in the team. We think he’s got a big future and hopefully he can show that with us.”

Dean Henderson is a confident young man and, last season, he backed that self-belief up with a remarkable season at Shrewsbury Town.

As loan moves go, this one was a real success story. He helped the unfancied Shrews slug it out towards the top of the League One table all year, played twice at Wembley and was named in the PFA Team of the Year. More than this, he transmitted his passion to the supporters and emerged as a real fans' favourite. Not bad for a 21-year-old in a position usually filled by somebody with far more experience.

And that has been the name of the game for Henderson, who has also had spells with Stockport County and Grimsby Town. Experience. Learning his trade on the job to speed up his development and move him closer to fulfilling his lofty long-term ambitions - keeping goal for Manchester United and England.

It would be easy to dismiss such aspirations but he is making steps in the right direction. The new contract, signed in front of his family at Old Trafford, is proof of the regard in which he is held at the club and reward for his form. United are blessed with a number of top-class keepers, including the very best in the world, but the youngster should be applauded for aiming for the stars.

He's also played at all the age levels with his country, being part of the squad that won the Under-20 World Cup, and made his Under-21 debut against Romania earlier this year. “One more step to go,” he tells MUTV. “The senior team. I’m eyeing that up in the next couple of years and that’s what I’m working towards. It’s an honour to represent your country. With the [Under-20] World Cup success we had last year, it makes you hungrier for more, to go on to compete to win the real thing and the Euros. They are great competitions to go on and really do your country proud. I’ll be looking at that in the coming years and see how far I can go.”

One former England no.1 has been very supportive of his fellow keeper's career as he has shared experience of representing Shrewsbury. Joe Hart, who spent last term at West Ham United, came up against his former club in the Emirates FA Cup and has kept in touch with Henderson, offering advice and the benefit of his experience.

“It’s weird, actually,” admits Dean. “Joe was always my idol growing up, being England’s no.1, and I always admired him. To play against him this year at his hometown club, was really an honour for myself. We had a good few words afterwards and exchanged numbers. He keeps in touch with me now and gives me good advice when I need it. He’s been a real good role model for me over the last six months and really given me some good advice over what to do, where to go and to keep playing games to get there eventually, because he says your talent will shine through.

”It was funny [how the friendship started]. It was the first international break after the summer and he was like: ‘You’re the one who went to Shrewsbury, Deano, aren’t you?’ We got chatting about a few places, where he hangs out in Shrewsbury, and he was telling me places to go to eat and things like that. It was where the connection started and then, obviously, we drew them in the FA Cup. It’s been good to get to know him over the last year and he’s been a really big help for me.“

Henderson completely embraced the move to Shrewsbury and has been a firm believer that the loan system is the best route to developing between the posts.

“Look, I stand by that,” he asserts. “I love going out on loan and playing games, playing in those pressure moments. We had a couple of trips to Wembley this year with Shrewsbury and, to feel the energy around the place and to get that as a young lad, I feel it’s important to go on to reach the next level. You need to go and play games to be put in those scenarios in order to come out better.

”I’m obviously a passionate lad and that’s well known around this club. So I wear my heart on my sleeve and give it everything I’ve got for everyone. I think that’s how it should be. They’ve given me an opportunity and a platform to go on and show what I can do so it’s only right that you give that back with good performances and a bit of passion.

“It’s no secret we were favourites to go down. We had one of the lowest budgets in the league but for the lads to come together and have the season we did, to take Rotherham to extra-time in the final, we were also victims of our own success. We did well in the FA Cup and obviously the Checkatrade Trophy so we played a lot of games. The lads were really tired on the day. Look, another day, it could have gone our way but I’m sure they will rebuild and go again to hopefully get promoted next season.”

The blond keeper strikes an imposing figure; he looks bigger and stronger than the last time we spoke before he headed away from the Aon Training Complex. When pressed on what he learned in League One, he says: “How to grow up and be a man, for a start.” It has been an educational process and, of course, challenges along the way but 'Deano' understands that. Senior players at Shrewsbury guided him through the long, hard season and offered some pointers. “I take it on the chin and learn from things,” he says. “Obviously, I’m not perfect. I’m always willing to learn and take everything in to go onto the next level.”

There aren't too many keepers of his age being afforded so much responsibility and he has thrived on the pressure. Like Hart, he appears a strong character and a tough mentality is probably essential for any goalie. “It’s well known in football that keepers always stick together through thick and thin,” he adds. “It can be a lonely place at times but also a good place.”

Finally, what about that self-confidence, an attitude that has already taken him a long way since the day he was asked to go in goal in his native Cumbria as a schoolboy and actually began to enjoy the thrill of “diving around in the mud”. For Dean, it's an essential tool if he is to reach his ultimate goal, no matter what is agreed for his career plan.

Appreciating the enormity of his surroundings, he says: “Looking at the Stretford End there, it’s 76,000 people in the ground. If you’re not confident, you know what’s going to happen – you’re going to make lots of mistakes. You have to stand on your own two feet and have that confidence, especially to play for a club like this and to go on and win titles, which is my main aim for the future.”

Last year, the keeper aced that loan spell in League One. What's next for Dean Henderson?

Baru perpanjang kontrak langsung dipinjamkan :D


Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has completed a season-long loan move to Championship side Sheffield United.

The highly rated England Under-21 international will spend the 2018/19 campaign with the Blades, who finished 10th in their first season back in the second tier last term.

Henderson sees his long-term future with the Reds, having signed a new contract with the club last week that will run until at least June 2020, with the option for a further year.

However, such is the fierce competition for places in the goalkeeping department at all levels at United, he makes the move to Bramall Lane in search of more regular first-team football on the back of a successful loan spell at Shrewsbury Town in 2017/18.

The 21-year-old, who has also been on loan at Stockport County and Grimsby Town in his career, was named in the PFA League One Team of the Season by his peers after helping the Shrews reach the play-off final.

Despite performing superbly at Wembley with a string of fine stops, including an early penalty save, Henderson couldn’t prevent the Shropshire outfit from losing 2-1 to Rotherham United after extra time.


In an interview with ManUtd.com’s Adam Marshall, Henderson expressed his excitement to get started with the Blades and is looking to make an impact at what he feels is a huge club in the Championship. “I can’t wait to go there to build on the last season I had at Shrewsbury,” said Dean.

“It’s in the division above and showing that progression by going on to the next bigger stage, in front of 30,000 passionate fans at Bramall Lane. I can’t wait to go there and perform and connect with them. I’m sure it will be a successful season.

“Sheffield United are a massive club and it’s a massive city for football. They’ve got that rivalry with Sheffield Wednesday and I’m looking forward to those games coming up as well. I can’t wait to get there and push up the division.”


Henderson follows in the footsteps of Joe Riley and James Wilson, who have previously had temporary stints at Sheffield United on loan from the Reds.

The keeper revealed that he spoke to Riley, who left United to join Bradford City last month, before agreeing his switch to the Blades and was full of praise for their manager Chris Wilder.

“Funnily enough I spoke to Joe last night about the manager,” Dean added. “He spoke really highly of him and, speaking to Chris Wilder, he has come across as really delighted to have me. It was a no-brainer and it gives me the platform to go there, play games and, hopefully, be a key part of the success there next season.

“I like the fact he’s a Sheffield lad and a Sheffield United fan. He is really passionate about where he wants the club to go and he wants hungry, ambitious young players to help him do that. It’s good as I’m an ambitious lad and, hopefully, we’ll hit it off well.”


After earning plenty of plaudits for his impressive campaign at Shrewsbury, in which he kept 19 clean sheets in 48 games in all competitions, there was plenty of competition to secure Henderson’s services.

However, the keeper is convinced that he has made the right choice in joining the Blades, who flirted with the play-off places last season before securing a top-half finish in their first campaign back in the Championship after six years in League One.

“There were a hell of a lot of loan clubs and I’m thankful to all of them for coming in,” Dean added.

“But I chose Sheffield United and a manager who has shown trust in me, plus a goalkeeping coach here in Wardy [Darren Ward], and I’m looking forward to learning and hopefully getting better and better.” Everyone at the club wishes Dean well during his time at Sheffield United.

It has been some season for Dean Henderson and the Manchester United keeper is striving for more success when representing England at the Under-21 European Championship finals.

The 22-year-old was a key figure as Sheffield United won promotion to the Premier League, earning the Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in the division. It was another superb loan spell for the Academy graduate, who was with Shrewsbury Town alongside Reds new boy Daniel James in 2017.

He has been handed the no.1 jersey by coach Aidy Boothroyd for the tournament, which takes place in Italy and San Marino, ahead of fellow stoppers Angus Gunn of Southampton and Newcastle United's Freddie Woodman.

Henderson, who lifted the Under-20 World Cup with his country in 2017, cannot wait for the finals to start, with the opening game taking place on Sunday when Poland face Belgium.

The chance to win another trophy and push his way towards Gareth Southgate's senior squad is one he is determined to take.

“That’s what I’ve been working for my whole life,” the Whitehaven-born youngster told the Cumbrian News & Star.

“It’s no secret I want to play for Man United and England. I’ve just got to keep working hard, stay grounded, keep setting my goals, and there’s no reason it can’t happen.”

England are in a group containing France, Romania and Croatia.

“It’s a really proud moment when you pull the shirt on and sing the national anthem,” Henderson added. ”You get those goosebumps. You can’t take it for granted.

“England have been successful through every age group so it’s going to be outstanding to go out there and try to win another trophy. We’ve got the capabilities, so we have to go out and play with no fear.”

Manchester United and Dean Henderson 'keen to sort out new contract before keeper returns to Premier League new boys Sheffield United on loan this season'

* Manchester United are set to 'offer goalkeeper Dean Henderson a new contract'
* The 22-year-old will then return to Sheffield United on loan for the new season
* Henderson has impressed for the Blades and on international duty with England
* He saved a penalty during the Young Lions 2-1 defeat by France on Tuesday

Manchester United will reportedly offer England Under 21 international Dean Henderson a new contract before he is returned to newly promoted Sheffield United on loan.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper played an integral role during the Blades promotion push last season and has continued his fine form into this summer's Under 21 European Championships.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already faced with the prospect of trying to tie down No 1 shot stopper David de Gea to a contract beyond the 12 months left on his present deal, but he is keen to ensure the club do not lose a grip of Henderson.

The Mirror report that the Red Devils will sort out Henderson's contract situation and offer him a new deal before he returns to Yorkshire for the new Premier League season.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder expressed his delight that the English prospect will be returning to Bramall Lane.

He told the Mirror: 'Dean made it clear to us that he has a very strong interest in coming back to Bramall Lane, and Manchester United are happy to go along with that.

'He wants his United contract sorted out first of all but, in terms of putting another temporary deal in place, I think we're in a good place with that one.

'United are pleased with what happened when he came here, with the way his game developed and the way he progressed over the course of the year.

'He's rated very highly at Old Trafford and you can understand why. Dean was outstanding for us last season and being able to bring him back again for another year would be brilliant.'

Manchester United will 'offer Dean Henderson a new deal' before returning to Sheffield United. Henderson played a key role during Sheffield United's promotion campaign last season

Henderson is Aidy Boothroyd's first-choice goalkeeper in Italy at the European Championships and he impressed in the Young Lions opening defeat by France.

He saved a penalty by Lyon forward Moussa Dembele in the first half, before England took a deserved lead through Phil Foden.

Henderson saw another spot-kick crash against his goal-post, while there was little he could do to prevent France's late comeback as Jonathan Ikone and and an Aaron Wan-Bissaka own goal resulted in a costly defeat.

Dean Henderson 'demands £75,000 a-week' to sign new Manchester United contract as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unveils new goalkeeper coach

* Dean Henderson is reportedly eyeing a new deal that would triple his wages
* England Under 21 goalkeeper made a howler in defeat by Romania on Friday
* He is confident that his wish to treble his wages will be met at Old Trafford

Dean Henderson has reportedly demanded an eye-watering new £75,000-a-week deal at Manchester United.

The England Under 21 goalkeeper is said to be confident that his wish to treble his wages will be met.

Henderson's howler on Friday night saw the Under 21s dumped out of the European Championship in a 4-2 defeat by Romania.

Dean Henderson has reportedly demanded a new £75,000-a-week deal at Manchester United

And now he wants a sign of commitment from United, report The Sun.

Henderson joined Old Trafford from Carlisle United eight years ago and is seen by Gareth Southgate as a potential rival for Jordan Pickford's No 1 shirt.

He is likely to remain on loan at Sheffield United this season after helping the Blades return to the Premier League.

Henderson has a year left on his current £25,000 per week deal and United have a further 12 – month option.

It comes after United confirmed the return of goalkeeper coach Richard Hartis.

Hartis worked with the academy and was also part of Sir Alex Ferguson's backroom team for decade.

He returns as Senior Goalkeeping Coach - but Emilio Alvarez, who was brought in by former boss Jose Mourinho, will remain.

'Richard is a fantastic goalkeeping coach and has a proven track record of developing goalkeepers for winning teams,' Solskjaer said.

* Henderson featured in each of the Blades 46 Championship matches last season

Sheffield United have announced the return of Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United after the 22-year-old signed a new three-year deal at Old Trafford.

Henderson was a key figure during the Blades promotion campaign last season, appearing in each of their 46 Championship matches.

The highly rated England Under-21 international, who has been with United since the age of 14, signed a new deal until 2022, with the option of a further year.

Henderson said: 'The club has been amazing in designing an individual pathway to aid my development which will enable me to reach my potential and perform at the highest level possible.

'Signing this contract is such a proud moment for myself and my family; I've worked so hard to reach this point and I want to do everything I can to repay the faith the club has shown in me.

'I am looking forward to being back at Bramall Lane, the opportunity to be reunited with the coaches and play in front of the amazing fans again is one that I am relishing. I cannot wait to enjoy a full season of Premier League football which I know will be hugely beneficial for my career.'

The Blades confirmed Henderson's return on Twitter, shortly after announcing the signing of Ben Osborn from Nottingham Forest.

Dean Henderson: 'Kiper' MU yang Hadiahi Liverpool Tiga Poin
Mohammad Resha Pratama - detikSport


Liverpool mengalahkan Sheffield United berkat blunder kiper Dean Henderson. Ironisnya, Henderson adalah kiper pinjaman dari Manchester United.

Melawat ke Bramall Lane pada pekan ketujuh Premier League, Sabtu (28/9/2019) malam WIB, Liverpool yang butuh tiga poin bermain dominan sejak menit pertama. Namun, dominasi itu tak berujung lahirnya peluang atau gol.

Tak cuma karena ketatnya barisan belakang Sheffield, performa Henderson di bawah mistar Sheffield mampu mementahkan peluang yang ada. Sayangnya, kukuhnya pertahanan Sheffield harus jebol juga pada menit ke-70.

Diawali sapuan yang tak sempurna, bola jatuh di kaki Gini Wijnaldum yang berada di depan kotak penalti. Dia langsung melepaskan sepakan voli yang sebenarnya tidak begitui kencang dan bisa diamainkan Henderson.

Namun, nasib berkata lain, bola malah terlepas dari tangkapan Henderson dan bergulir pelan ke gawang. Henderson yang coba meraihnya malah gagal dan keunggulan Liverpool 1-0 bertahan hingga laga tuntas.


Liverpool masih menjaga kesempurnaannya hingga pekan ketujuh. Kemenangan ini bisa dibilang ironi untuk Henderson, karena dia membantu klub rivalnya meraih poin penuh.

Seperti diketahui, Henderson adalah kiper pinjaman Setan Merah dalam dua tahun terakhir dan belum pernah bermain di tim senior meski berasal dari akademi. Pemuda 22 tahun itu juga berperan besar mengantarkan Sheffield promosi ke Premier League.

"Jika dia ingin jadi pesepakbola profesional, hal-hal seperti ini bakal terjadi," ujar manajer Sheffield, Chris Wilder, di situs resmi klub.

"Tapi jika dia ingin bermain untuk tim-tim top, bermain untuk timnas Inggris, maka dia harus tampil lebih baik," sambungnya.

"Dia harus lebih berkonsentrasi. Hari yang mengecewakan untuknya. Saya tidak mau menghiburnya. Jelas dia harus tampil lebih baik."

Musim memang masih panjang, Liverpool bisa saja gagal juara seperti halnya musim lalu. Tapi, jika takdir menghendaki Liverpool juara Liga Inggris, maka Henderson sebagai pemain MU punya andil untuk itu.

Manchester United set to spark £20m bidding war for young keeper Dean Henderson after tying David de Gea to a new long-term contract

* Manchester United agreed a contract extension with keeper David de Gea
* That means Dean Henderson could leave next summer for a fee of £20million
* Keeper is on loan at Sheffield United and made an error in defeat by Liverpool

Manchester United are ready to start a bidding war for young keeper Dean Henderson and hope he will fetch up to £20million, according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old has impressed on loan at Sheffield United, having helped the Blades to Championship promotion last season.

However, while he hopes to become Manchester United No 1, a recent long-term extension handed to David de Gea means he may be forced to go elsewhere for first-team football.

Dean Henderson could be heading out of the door at Old Trafford for a fee of £20million

Henderson is determined to become a Premier League regular and represent England, but may opt to do that away from his boyhood club.

He did, however, commit a costly error for Sheffield United in defeat by Liverpool, letting Gerginio Wijnaldum's innocuous volley slip through his legs for the only goal of the game.

In the aftermath, boss Chris Wilder refused to defend his charge, saying: 'I'm not bothered how people feel. This is a real tough sport. I'm certainly not going to pt my arm around him and rub his head.

'We set a high bar. It always amazes me when pundits talk about not criticising players in the press.

'This game has been beamed around the world. There's no hiding place.'


tanda tangan De Gea sudah diamankan, jasa Henderson, Peirera, Johnstone kayaknya 'sudah tidak diperlukan' mengingatkan kiper termasuk pemain 'yg jarang cedera', apalagi disana masih ada Romero & Grant, kayakny posisi kiper sudah cukup aman

‘He has all the physical attributes you need… plus that cockiness and confidence': Ex-Man United coach Eric Steele reveals Dean Henderson is ready to challenge David de Gea for No 1 spot after Sheffield United loan

* The 22-year-old shot stopper is enjoying his second spell on loan at Bramall lane
* Dean Henderson's form has even earned him a call up from Gareth Southgate
* Ex Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has lauded his abilities

Former Manchester United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele has tipped Sheffield United loanee Dean Henderson to challenge for the number one spot at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old was pivotal in helping the Blades gain promotion from the Championship last season and has kept three clean sheets this year - earning himself an England call up.

And Steele, who left United after David Moyes took over as manager in 2013, thinks the youngster has what it takes to succeed at one of the world's biggest clubs.

Eric Steele has tipped Sheffield United's Dean Henderson to challenge de Gea at Old Trafford. Henderson's form has even earned him a call up from Gareth Southgate to the England squad

'He has all the physical attributes you need,' Steele told The Athletic. 'Plus that cockiness and confidence about him. He sees himself as the biggest challenger to David De Gea at Manchester United and I love that. Even though he is not at the club right now.

'I have no problems with that. He is doing the right thing and getting experience at a good club. He is still a young keeper. Peter Schmeichel didn't come to Old Trafford until he was 28. David De Gea was the exception at 19 or 20. I have said this to Dean privately. He is still a young keeper.'

Henderson's form for Chris Wilder's side saw him called up for international duty, earning a spot in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the ongoing Euro 2020 qualifiers, following the withdrawal of Tom Heaton due to injury.

The Whitehaven-born star was also loaned to Sheffield United last season from Old Trafford, keeping 21 clean sheets in 46 games.

Steele said Henderson knows his parent club are keeping an eye on him.

'Knowing Dean as I do, what he will be thinking is, 'Richard Hartis (Manchester United's senior goalkeeping coach) and Ole Gunnar (Solskjaer), please keep sending your scouts to Sheffield United.

'He knows he is being watched,' the 65-year-old said.

United's current number one David de Gea has performed under-par in his side's torrid start to the Premier League season, keeping just two clean sheets in eight games.

However, the Spaniard signed a new four-year deal last month and United also have strong understudies in Argentina keeper Sergio Romero and seasoned veteran Lee Grant, but Steele insists Henderson 'knows what is required'.

'But Richard Hartis will be asking, 'Who is going to challenge De Gea?' I am sure Dean will be thinking he can be the number one at Manchester United,' he added.

Henderson previously earned plaudits on loan at Stockport, Grimsby and Shrewsbury and this season has a save rate of 76.67%, higher than De Gea.

It was a great weekend for three of Manchester United’s on-loan players, as their sides recorded important wins in their various leagues.

Dean Henderson kept a fifth clean sheet of the season, as Sheffield United dispatched Burnley 3-0 to move up to sixth place in the Premier League table.

The Blades struck three times in the first half at Bramall Lane to blow Sean Dyche’s side away, with John Lundstram netting a brace and John Fleck scoring his first top-flight goal.

In Italy, Chris Smalling’s Roma powered to a third consecutive win in Serie A, with goals from Nicolo Zaniolo and Jordan Veretout helping the Giallorossi to a 2-1 home victory over Napoli.

The centre-back played the full 90 minutes, with his personal highlight being an acrobatic goalline clearance to keep out Di Lorenzo's header from a free-kick when the score was still 1-0. Although Arkadiusz Milik did eventually pull one back for Napoli with 20 minutes to play, the capital club held out and are now third in Serie A.

In League Two, George Tanner's Morecambe are still occupying the only relegation place but secured an important 1-0 win at home to Leyton Orient, thanks to A-Jay Leitch-Smith's 74th-minute goal.

The United right-back helped The Shrimps to keep their third clean sheet of the campaign and they are now level on points with Stevenage in 23rd place.

Elsewhere in the Football League, Kieran O’Hara was in goal as Burton Albion battled to a 2-2 draw at Doncaster Rovers. Goals from David Templeton and Lucas Akins twice put the Brewers in front, but the home side fought back to secure a point that leaves Burton 13th in League One, albeit with games in hand on many of the teams above them.

Ethan Hamilton missed Southend’s 1-0 defeat at Sunderland through suspension, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was an unused substitute in Tranmere’s 3-1 win at MK Dons.

In Scotland, there was heartbreak for Joel Castro Pereira as his Hearts side were beaten 3-0 by Rangers in the Betfred Cup semi-final. Filip Helander finished smartly past Pereira to give the Gers a half-time lead, before Alfredo Morelos capped off the win with a second-half double.

Meanwhile, in Norway, Aidan Barlow scored for Tromso in their 3-2 loss at Sarpsborg.

Finally, Alex Fotijcek was in goal as non-league Stalybridge Celtic were defeated 1-0 at Radcliffe Borough.

Uncapped Sheffield United 'keeper Dean Henderson has been called into the England squad. Henderson will come in for Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton who has picked up an injury

Heaton missed Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Wolves after injuring his calf in training while Barkley has sat out Chelsea's last six games.

An FA statement read: 'Ross Barkley and Tom Heaton have been ruled out of England's forthcoming UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers through injury.

'Goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been added to Gareth Southgate's squad in place of Aston Villa's Heaton but no replacements are planned for Chelsea's Barkley.

'Henderson will arrive at St George's Park on Monday as England's now 26-man squad begin preparations for their final fixtures of 2019.'

Henderson has helped the promoted Blades to fifth in the Premier League after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

The 22-year-old also replaced Heaton in last month's squad after the Villa man pulled out.

England host Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday, where a win would book their spot at next summer's tournament.

Southgate's men then go to Kosovo for their final Group A match on Sunday.

Sheffield United already in talks with Manchester United to take Dean Henderson on loan for third season as Chris Wilder hails 'outstanding' keeper
Dean Henderson made a penalty save from Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus

* On-loan keeper from Manchester United also made a series of important stops
* Blades have already opened talks with United to take Henderson for third season
* He helped the club win promotion from the Championship last season
* And Henderson has been excellent as they've defied odds in the top flight

Sheffield United have already opened negotiations with Manchester United to take goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan for a third time.

Henderson continues to impress as Sheffield United, promoted into the Premier League last season, defy all expectations to sit seventh in the table.

The 22-year-old was excellent again in Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, saving a first-half penalty from Gabriel Jesus and making several other important saves.

United manager Chris Wilder described Henderson's performance as 'outstanding' and revealed that efforts to keep him for a third season have already started.

Henderson was an ever-present in the Championship as the Blades won promotion during his first season on loan from United in 2018-19.

He has played 23 of United's 24 games in the Premier League this season, the one exception being the visit of his parent club, and has kept eight clean sheets.

Henderson declared himself ready to play for Manchester United's first team last summer but is unlikely to dislodge David de Gea so long as the Spaniard is at Old Trafford.

However, his form for Sheffield United this season has put him in contention for a maiden England cap after he was called up in October to replace the injured Tom Heaton.

'He wants to play first-team football,' Wilder said on Tuesday night. 'Maybe I shouldn't be saying this, but I'm not so sure he'll play back-up to anybody. Maybe he'll come out and say it.

'If there's a decision for Manchester United, for him to come out to us for another year, we'll gladly take that up.

'We've already started talking with them but obviously he's their player.

'That decision on behalf of Manchester United and the player, but he's been outstanding for us.'

'I have always had that dream': Dean Henderson sets sights on ousting David de Gea as Manchester United's long-term No 1

* The Sheffield United shot-stopper is currently on loan from the Red Devils
* Dean Henderson's fine form could see him replace David de Gea at Man United
* The 22-year-old has won plenty of plaudits for his performances this campaign
* Henderson has also been tipped to start for England in this summer's Euro 2020

Dean Henderson is hoping to oust David de Gea as Manchester United's No 1 goalkeeper.

The Sheffield United shot-stopper is currently on loan from the Red Devils.

His fine form has sparked a debate over whether he should be ahead of De Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Henderson told the Kelly and Wrighty show: 'The big dream is to play for Manchester United one day.

'I've always had that dream throughout my life so until that's accomplished I'll never think I've made it.

'Even if I play for them once I won't think I've made it. I need to play for them 500 times, 300 times, whatever it is, then you can turnaround at the end of your career and say, "I made it, I did what I set out to do".'

Paris Saint-Germain plotting shock summer move for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson as he shines on loan at Sheffield United

* Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race to sign Dean Henderson this summer
* The Manchester United keeper has impressed during his loan at Sheffield United
* Chelsea, Sheffield United and Tottenham are also interested in the 22-year-old
* United view him as a future No 1 with David de Gea currently standing in his way

Paris Saint-Germain are planning a summer approach for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

French giants PSG have joined Chelsea, Tottenham and Sheffield United in keeping a close eye on United's intentions for Henderson beyond this season.

The mounting interest in the 22-year-old has added to the Old Trafford club's dilemma.

Henderson has pushed his claims for a return to United, who view him as a future No 1, as well as a place in England's Euro 2020 squad during an impressive second season-long loan at Sheffield United.

But standing in his way is United's current first choice goalkeeper David De Gea who signed a new contract last summer that will run until 2023 at least.

His suitors are now circling to see if they can take advantage of the situation and prise him away from his boyhood club. PSG have identified Henderson as they look to evolve their squad by bringing in younger players.

Paris Saint-Germain are keen to sign Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson this summer. Henderson's impressed on loan at Sheffield United and has drawn interest from several clubs. Manchester United view him as a future No 1 with David de Gea currently standing in his way

Chelsea want a new challenger for their No 1 position admit doubts over Kepa Arrizabalaga, a world record £72m signing in 2018, who has struggled to convince at Stamford Bridge and has been dropped for their last two games.

Spurs, meanwhile, are also preparing for changes in their goalkeeping department this summer. They are currently planning to bring in a new back-up keeper with Michel Vorm due to leave when his short-term deal expires at the end of the season.

Though with captain Hugo Lloris aged 33 Henderson would represent a long-term successor. Sheffield United boss, Chris Wilder, meanwhile, has been open about his hopes of re-signing Henderson for another campaign next season.

Dean Henderson promises Sheffield United loan return if he is not guaranteed No 1 spot at Manchester United as Englishman makes strong case to start at Euros

* Dean Henderson has told team-mates he will be back on loan next season
* The Blades goalkeeper wants a guaranteed starting spot at Manchester United
* Henderson is the league's in-form keeper and is making his case for the Euros
* Jordan Pickford is England No 1 but Henderson's form cannot go unnoticed

Dean Henderson has told his Sheffield United team-mates he will be back on loan at the club next season if he is not guaranteed a starting role at Manchester United.

To that end, his parent club have a big decision to make this summer. The likelihood is that David de Gea, having signed a new contract in September, will remain at Old Trafford and retain his No.1 jersey.

Real Madrid, however, have again been linked with a summer move for the Spaniard, whose reliability continues to be questioned.

Dean Henderson will return to Sheffield United on loan if he is not handed Man United No 1 role

That is one criticism you cannot aim at Henderson. He is the Premier League's outstanding goalkeeper on current form and, by the time he returns to United in May, is almost certain to be an England international.

It would be a bold move, but cashing in on De Gea and installing Henderson as first choice would generate funds for investment elsewhere.

But forget the monetary incentive - there is every chance Henderson will emerge as a better goalkeeper than De Gea over the course of the next 12 months anyway.

Henderson is the Premier League's in-form goalkeeper with a host of standout performances. The Englishman has flourished with the Blades but wants guarantees over his future

Billy Sharp - match-winner against Norwich on Saturday - clearly rates his 22-year-old team-mate.

'I'm certain he'll be England's number one soon,' said Sharp. 'He has to be with his performances - and he wants to be as well.'

Of Henderson's future, Sharp said: 'We're not in his ear about it, we don't need to be.

'He wants to come back. He wants to play for Man United, obviously - he's not going to lie - but if he can't do that he wants to play for Sheffield United.'

Henderson made a treble save late on against Norwich to protect three points and his 10th clean sheet of the season.

Like all of the best goalkeepers, he boasts an unashamed belief in his own ability.

'He's a confident boy and he's not shy, but he backs it up,' said Blades boss Chris Wilder.

'He has a huge desire to take his game to the very top. He is doing the absolute maximum to be the best he possibly can.'

Which United it is who benefit from that forecast improvement next season remains to be seen.

Jika memang De Gea bakal dilepas maka skenarionya menurut saya adalah Romero naik jadi kiper pertama sementara Dean Henderson kiper kedua. Kiper ketiga sepertinya sih tetap Lee Grant :D

Selama masih ada De Gea di United, peluang bagi Den Henderson mungkin tidak berbeda jauh dengan Lee Grant yang sulit menembus tim utama meskipun hanya sebatas kiper kedua sekalipun.. Semangat Dean Henderson !

MU Takkan Jual Dean Henderson Musim Depan
Adhi Prasetya - detikSport


Manchester - Dean Henderson disiapkan menjadi kiper masa depan Manchester United. Kubu Setan Merah pun enggan menjualnya pada musim panas mendatang.

Kiper 23 tahun itu tengah menjalani masa peminjaman bersama Sheffield United. Di musim perdananya merasakan kerasnya Premier League, Henderson justru tampil cemerlang.

Sebanyak 10 cleansheets berhasil diciptakan, setara dengan kiper Liverpool, Alisson Becker dan hanya kalah dari Nick Pope (Burnley) yang membuat 11 cleansheets.

Berstatus tim promosi, Sheffield dibawanya menduduki peringkat ketujuh klasemen sementara Liga Inggris. Ia juga sudah mendapat panggilan dari Timnas Inggris, meski belum mendapat kesempatan turun.

Penampilannya itu membuat sejumlah klub besar tertarik pada Henderson. Chelsea dan Paris Saint-Germain disebut-sebut meminatinya.

Dilaporkan ESPN, saat ini Henderson tak mau pulang ke MU meski masih memiliki kontrak hingga 2022. Ia enggan menjadi cadangan David De Gea, yang disebut-sebut masih dipercaya Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sebagai kiper utama MU untuk musim depan.

Meski demikian, MU tak mau melego Henderson karena ingin menggunakan jasanya sebagai bagian rencana jangka panjang MU. Oleh sebab itu, mereka lebih memilih opsi meminjamkannya kembali pada musim depan, entah tetap di Sheffield ataupun ke klub lain.

Jika penampilannya terus membaik, kemungkinan besar MU akan mengajukan kontrak baru agar ia tak dibajak klub lain.

Manchester United yet to decide Dean Henderson future

Keeper's loan at Bramall Lane ends on June 30


Manchester United are yet to decide if they will allow England prospect Dean Henderson to extend his loan spell at Sheffield United.

In a scenario which looked impossible at the start of the season, both Uniteds are rivals in the race for a Champions League spot and a potential £60m prize pot.

Henderson has enjoyed a magnificent season, keeping 10 clean sheets and earning a call-up to Gareth Southgate's full England squad.

With discussions continuing over a return to Premier League action next month, officials at Bramall Lane are keen to learn if Henderson's year-long loan can be extended beyond June 30 when it runs out.

Across the Pennines, Manchester United have stalled on a decision to date, until a revised calendar of fixtures is agreed.

With so much at stake, pressure may mount on executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to stop such a pivotal member of the Blades squad from staying longer than has been agreed.

According to The Sun, Premier League shareholders discussed the potential of extending loans beyond June at their meeting last Friday, insisting a player and both clubs involved would have to be in agreement before any loan could be extended.

If games recommence in mid-June, the 23-year old could potentially play around half of the Blades' league games before his loan ended. One game, however, he will definitely miss is the Blades' trip to Old Trafford - for which he is ineligible.

Chris Wilder's men are one of four teams with 10 league games left to play - their fixture against Aston Villa was postponed due to their appearance in the Carabao Cup final.

The Blades could also have to factor in the potential of a continued cup run, starting with a home quarter-final tie against Arsenal.

Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck has backed team-mate Henderson for the very top, insisting the on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper has what it takes to fulfil his dream of becoming No. 1 for club and country.

"He's been amazing and he's still a young boy," Fleck said, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports' Kris Boyd.

"He's kept clean sheets, made some massive saves for us, kept us in games at times. I'm sure he's going to have a massive career ahead of him.

"He'll quite openly tell you he wants to be Manchester United's No. 1 and England's No. 1 as quick as possible. I don't think, personally, he's too far away from that now.

"Goalkeepers are a bit crazy - he's a bit mad at times! But he's got that big personality.

"When he's maybe made a mistake and the manager has criticised him, he's bounced back straight away. That's just the personality he's got and I'm sure that's what will get him to the top."

Blades boss Chris Wilder raised some eyebrows when he publicly criticised Henderson following a rare gaffe that cost his side against Liverpool early in the season but Wilder has since defended his approach, highlighting Henderson's mental toughness as one of several credentials he believes can make him the best in the country.

Speaking to Sky Sports on The Football Show, Wilder said: "Dean Henderson wants to be an international goalkeeper, win 50-odd caps, play for Manchester United. He's going to have to put up with disappointment. That's how it is. But I talked to Dean afterwards. The players know I'm their biggest supporter and backer."

Asked whether he had the potential to be England's top choice, Wilder added: "Yes, 100 per cent. He's pushing now and he's a young boy.

"He's a charismatic young guy but the biggest thing is that he's got the mental strength and a brilliant attitude and ability. I'm sure he'll gain that shirt he's desperate to get."
