Report: Leeds eye Manchester United’s Dean Henderson; could make loan bid

Leeds United are one of the sides monitoring Dean Henderson as they wait to see if the Manchester United goalkeeper could be allowed to leave on loan in January, according to a report from The Sun.

Henderson has established himself as one of the most talented men between the sticks in the Premier League. However, this season has not gone ideally for the England international.

He is yet to make a Premier League appearance. And The Sun is reporting that he is now interested in leaving on loan in the winter as he looks to secure a place at Euro 2020.

It remains to be seen if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be willing to let him go. But according to The Sun, Leeds and Brighton are keeping an eye on developments. Bournemouth are also said to be keen.

TBR View: Leeds move currently looks unlikely

As things stand, it is difficult to see Henderson ending up at Elland Road. The £100,000-a-week star (via Spotrac) will surely want assurances over game-time before he joins anyone.


Marcelo Bielsa is a boss who tends to give his players every chance to keep their place in his side. And at the moment, Illan Meslier is the first-choice.

Admittedly, there have been times when Meslier has struggled. But the 20-year-old has been excellent for much of his time as number one. And it would surely take a dramatic drop in form to make Bielsa consider a change.

Henderson is a fantastic talent. But Bielsa’s loyalty could mean that there is a danger that he would also have to bide his time at Leeds if he did join them in January.
