Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been tipped to rival David De Gea as the first choice goalkeeper at Manchester United according to the former goalkeeping coach at the club.

According to Eric Steele via The Athletic, Dean Henderson has the physical attributes and the quality to be a Manchester United goalkeeper.

Dean Henderson is on loan at newly promoted side Sheffield United from Manchester United at the moment.

The 22-year-old shot stopper is in his second spell at Sheffield United and he has been in very good form for his team.

His form for Sheffield United led to him being called up to the England national team squad for the first time.

Dean Henderson was called into the Three Lions squad as a replacement for injured Aston Villa shot stopper Tom Heaton.

Before his loan move to Sheffield United at the start of last season, the newly invited England goalkeeper spent loan time at other English clubs like Stockport County, Shrewsbury Town and Grimsby Town.

He was a key part of the Sheffield United team that won promotion to the Premier League at the end of last season.

Sheffield United secured promotion to the English top flight after finishing second last season while they were in the Championship.
