While Jose Mourinho is ensuring that his squad is adequately bolstered ahead of the upcoming campaign, Man United are clearing out quiet a number of their players deemed surplus to requirement.
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a season-long loan move, reports Skysports.
The 20-year old is yet to make first team appearance for Man United but he has recently shown prospect. He was part of the England U-20 squad that conquered the World Cup and has been a regular face for reserves of Manchester United.
Henderson joined Man United at 14 but before then, he was at Carlisle United for up to six years. He came close to first team action when he was on the bench for United’s FA Cup win at Blackburn Rovers in February.
He has been to Stockport County and Grimsby Town on loan, where he kept four clean sheets in seven League appearances at Grimsby Town last season.
Paul Hurst was the manager of Henderson at Grimsby last year, and the youngster revealed why he favoured a move with the same manager at Shrewsbury Town.
“I had a few options but the interest the gaffer has shown in me was massive.
“You’ve got to show the progression and I’m obviously delighted to come here.”
Man United handed Joel Pereira a contract extension as their third choice goalkeeper and Sam Johnstones is on the verge of a loan move, leaving Henderson with no chance at United. He will garner move experience and exposure with this move and we hope he comes good.
