Dean Henderson happy to sign new Man Utd deal

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has signed a new contract.

Henderson, who impressed on loan at Shrewsbury last season, has put pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal with the club. It also contains an option for an extra year.

England under-21 stopper Henderson was a wanted man after an impressive spell in League One.

“I'm really delighted," he told MUTV. “Coming off the back of last season and playing games at Shrewsbury and having a good season there, to return to the biggest club in the world and put pen-to-paper again is a great achievement for me and my family. It's another dream come true.

"Obviously, there was a lot of interest after last season, when I've done myself well going out and playing but, look, United are the biggest club in the world and have been my club since day one so, of course, they are always first in my mind.

“All my family are here with me now and it's an honour. To come from where we started from, from nothing, to come all this way is fantastic and I'm just really delighted."

He is set to be loaned out to a Championship side next season to continue his development.
