Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson will sign a new long-term contract at the Theatre of Dreams before he leaves the club on loan later this summer.

This is according to the publication from the stables of the Daily Mirror which revealed that the 22-year-old shot stopper will return to Sheffield United for another loan spell.

Dean Henderson spent last season on loan at Sheffield United whom he helped to seal promotion to the top flight of English football.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder also confirmed the latest arrangement as he said that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has approved a second loan move for the highly-rated goalkeeper.

According to him, the young goalkeeper has always been open to the possibility of returning to the club for another loan spell.

Dean Henderson in a recent interview revealed that he wants to return to Manchester United to fight for the number one spot amongst the goalkeepers at the club but he might need to wait for another season with the new arrangement.

The England u-21 goalkeeper was in superb form last season as they gained promotion to the Premier League after a second-place finish in the English Championship.

He kept 21 clean sheets in 46 league games.
