Wilder hopes to keep Henderson

Published on: 25 May 2019

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder is hopeful of being able to keep hold of loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson for the Blades' return to the Premier League next season.

The 22-year-old Manchester United gloveman was a key figure for the Blades as they secured second place in the Championship and a return to the English top-flight for the first time since 2007.

We've got a good relationship with Manchester United and if Dean signs we'll be delighted.

And Wilder hopes to be able to call on Henderson once again next term, with the England Under-21 international having played in all 46 league games for the Sheffield outfit this term.

He told PA Sport: "We're working our way through it.

"We've been in discussions with Manchester United and I think they see it as a positive that he gets a year of Premier League football under his belt.

"I know Dean definitely wants to stay and our supporters absolutely adore him. We've got a good relationship with Manchester United and if Dean signs we'll be delighted.

"He's been outstanding since he's been at the club. He had a fantastic loan period at Shrewsbury Town (the season before) and he's kicked on and has a wonderful future ahead of him."

The Blades conceded just 41 goals in 46 league games this season, with Henderson keeping 21 clean sheets - the best tally in the division.

Sheffield United are 4/6 to be relegated next season, while they can be backed at 6/5 to avoid the drop.
