Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is set to sign a new deal with the club despite major interest from the Premier League, the Championship and abroad, The Daily Mail reports.
A host of clubs are interested in Henderson, including Championship duo Bristol City and Stoke City.
The England under-21 international was also on the radar of three major European teams: Benfica (Portugal), Olympiacos (Greece) and Roma (Italy).
But it appears he is close to penning a new three-year deal at Old Trafford after impressing on loan at League One Shrewsbury Town last year.
The 21-year-old kept 19 clean sheets and was included in the PFA League One Team of the Year as he guided his side to the play-off final – which they eventually lost to Rotherham United.
With his contract expiring this summer, clubs were eyeing a bargain £1m compensation deal for the youngster but he now appears set to continue at Man United.
Stoke were eyeing Henderson as a long-term replacement for Premier League target Jack Butland should he depart this summer, while Bristol City are looking for a new number one to replace Frank Fielding between the sticks.
Henderson would have been a shrewd addition for either Bristol City or Stoke, improving their current options (if Butland leaves the latter) in the short-term and providing a long-term replacement at a bargain price.
At the age of 21, he already established himself as arguably the finest goalkeeper in the third tier and he seems ready to make the step up to the Championship.
Any deal is not dead in the water yet, though, with Man United expected to send him out on loan so we could see some interest reigniting from these two.
