Dean Henderson denied Manchester United move with Tottenham monitoring situation for the summer

Dean Henderson’s frustrating season at Man United continues with the January transfer window starting this week.

Ralf Rangnick has told Dean Henderson that he cannot loan Manchester United next month.

Henderson, 24, is desperate for regular playing time after missing the start of the season with Covid-19 and Ajax has expressed interest in a lease until the end of the season.

However, Rangnick has told Henderson that he wants three first-team-ready goalkeepers on his team and sources have suggested the pair could find themselves at odds over the decision.

Tottenham are keeping an eye on Henderson’s situation with a view to a summer transfer as Hugo Lloris approaches the final six months of his contract.

United’s number one David de Gea has returned to form, having started in all of United’s 17 Premier League appearances this season, as well as five of their six Champions League group stage appearances.

Henderson has a contract with United until 2025 and earns around £120,000 a week.

He had been told he would start the season as the number one goalkeeper, but he contracted Covid-19 in the second week of preparation and was out for a month.

Henderson has only played twice this season in the League Cup and the last group stage match of the Champions League.

Henderson felt badly managed at United by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the keeper was one of a number of players who promised first-team opportunities but were denied them. Jesse Lingard, Diogo Dalot and Donny van de Beek all had similar complaints.

At this stage, Henderson is willing to leave United permanently, but the club have shown no inclination to sell the England international.

Ajax chief and former United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is a staunch admirer of Henderson, while the national champion’s coach, Erik ten Hag, is being considered to become United’s next permanent manager. United have already rejected a loan offer from Sevilla for Anthony Martial, as the terms covered only half of the Frenchman’s wages. United requires all Martial buyers to pay his salary in full, as well as a loan.
