Aston Villa have made an enquiry for Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
Henderson has given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a headache ahead of next season. The 22-year-old was outstanding out on loan with Sheffield United and the Mail reports that his parent club are looking to agree a new contract with the youngster.
However, the Mail adds that Henderson is keen to play regularly next season. And that may prove to be an issue should David De Gea continue as first-choice at Old Trafford.
That has prompted a number of clubs to make an approach. And the Daily Mail has suggested that Villa are amongst those to have made an enquiry concerning Henderson’s availability.
Interestingly, the Mail adds that United are actually looking at putting together a bid for Villa talisman Jack Grealish that could see Sergio Romero move in the opposite direction.
TBR View: Henderson or Romero would be outstanding signings for Villa
It would be little surprise if Dean Smith was reluctant to accept United’s potential swap bid. Nevertheless, it is surely fair to say that Romero or Henderson could prove superb additions to his ranks if a deal can be done.
Either goalkeeper is arguably good enough to be first-choice at the large majority of Premier League clubs. In fact, there will surely be plenty of United fans hoping that Henderson stays and starts next season as number one for Solskjaer’s side.
So it would be a huge coup for Villa if they can agree a deal for either player. The supporters will just be hoping that Grealish heading the other way is not part of it.
