Dean Henderson has signed a new five-year contract at Manchester United, the club announced on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper has been rewarded for his impressive displays on loan at Sheffield United last season with fresh terms that include an option for the Red Devils to extend his stay by a further year.

Henderson, who has been included in the England squad for next month's Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark, has been linked with another temporary move away from Old Trafford.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously acknowledged it would be difficult to have Henderson, David de Gea and Sergio Romero in the same squad.

However, he is excited to see what the future holds for the academy product.

"We are delighted that Dean has signed his new contract. He had another great season at Sheffield United, where he gained a lot of experience and grew both as a player and a person," said Solskjaer.

"Dean is a fantastic young keeper with the attitude and work-rate to keep improving every day.


"We are in a strong position within the goalkeeping department and that gives us the competition for places that we are looking for in the squad.

"Dean is another great example of the type of player who has come through the academy and truly understands what it means to be at Manchester United.

"We are all looking forward to working with Dean and continuing to develop his talent."
