Exclusive: Nigel Martyn thinks Dean Henderson would be a good signing for Leeds United
Nigel Martyn has told The Boot Room that he believes Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson would be a good signing for Leeds United in January – but feels a move is harsh on Illan Meslier, and would spell the end for Kiko Casilla.
Henderson, 23, is looking for a loan move ahead of the January window in order to cement his ticket to Euro 2021 with England. He has managed just three games for Manchester United, since returning from two years on loan at Sheffield United.
The Sun claim Bournemouth, Brighton and Leeds are keen – though the Cherries are hardly likely to win the tussle, given they are in the Championship. Henderson signed a five-year deal with United this season, worth £100,000 a week (Spotrac).
While Martyn feels Henderson would be a good addition, Leeds icon Martyn thinks a loan would be pointless and a permanent option or an outright buy is the better move. He also feels for Meslier, and such a deal would be worrying for Casilla.
