Manchester United is delighted to announce that Dean Henderson has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2022, with the option to extend for a further year.
Henderson, 22, is a product of the club’s Academy and has been at Manchester United since the age of 14.
The England Under-21 international joins Sheffield United on a season-long loan for the 2019/20 campaign. Henderson enjoyed a successful loan spell at Bramall Lane last season and kept the most clean sheets in the Championship as The Blades secured promotion to the Premier League.
Dean 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.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
“Dean had a fantastic season at Sheffield United and has a big future ahead of him so I am delighted that he has signed this contract. He is another top-level talent that has come through the Academy to continue the proud tradition of producing players capable of playing in the first team.
“We have great faith in Dean’s ability; he has huge potential and his spirit and passion will stand him in good stead this year. We wish Dean the best of luck with his loan move. The opportunity to play a full season of Premier League football is perfect for his development.”
