Man Utd boss Solskjaer 'very impressed' by Henderson at Sheffield Utd

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's delighted with the progress of Dean Henderson on-loan at Sheffield United.

Henderson will be ineligible to face his parent club at Bramall Lane on Sunday afternoon due to Premier League loan rules, but his form — after helping Chris Wilder's side to promotion last season — has aided the Blades' ascent to fifth in the top flight this term.

Solskjaer will be reacquainted with Simon Moore — a player he knows well from his time at Cardiff City manager, who is due to deputise for Henderson — at Bramall Lane this weekend.

Asked in his pre-match press conference if he'd been impressed with Henderson, Solskjaer replied: "Very. Dean's done really well for them, Sheffield United has been really good for him, but then Simon, the second goalkeeper if he'll play, I had at Cardiff as well and he is still a good goalie."
