Cardiff City

Man United player could be on the way out of Old Trafford as club look to seal deal



Cardiff City are said to be chasing Manchester United’s 21-year old keeper, Dean Henderson.

According to the print edition of the Sunday Mirror (page 67), the Bluebirds are leading the chase to sign the highly-rated keeper, who is currently on loan at Shrewsbury Town.

Whitehaven-born Henderson joined the Manchester United academy at the age of 14, having previously been with Carlisle United. He has represented England at U16 and U17 level and was a member of the World Cup winning U20 squad too. He featured once in the group stages against Guinea and was an unused sub for the final.

He’s made 36 appearances on loan at the New Meadow, playing as recently as this Saturday in the 2-0 win against Walsall which saw the Shrews jump to second in the table. He’s also played in the last three Checkatrade Trophy games as Paul Hurst’s side stormed to Wembley.

As well as his Shrewsbury loan, he’s also had spells at Stockport County and Grimsby Town, the latter spell being extended three times before the Red Devils recalled him to Old Trafford.

His form at Shrewsbury has seen his stock rise and he now looks set for a big summer move.

The Verdict

Henderson is an exciting keeper, there’s no doubt about that. Cardiff started with Lee Camp as number one this season, but he’s out on loan and Neil Etheridge has stepped up.

There’s a starting position there for the taking and absolutely no reason at all why Dean Henderson won’t be the man to do it.
