Manchester United could garner interest in one star of three clubs in January, while Manchester City want new contracts for a key pair – all in the latest Paper Talk.
HENDERSON WANTS MAN UTD LOAN
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson wants to move out of the club on loan in January, according to a report.
The 23-year-old has only played three times since moving back to Old Trafford in recent months. But he is yet to start in the Premier League, with No. 1 team David de Gea United.
In fact, his only appearances have come in the Carabao Cup and the Champions League. But if United were to advance in both competitions, De Gea is likely to maintain his place.
As such, The S.one on Sunday claimed that Henderson would ‘jump at’ the opportunity to secure more game time. The stopper’s main concerns are his place in the England squad.
The goalkeeper recently won his first cap but knows that without game time, Lions boss Gareth Southgate could look elsewhere.
What’s more, the newspaper identifies three other players who could practically replace him. Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale, Aston Villa’s Sam Johnstone and Southampton’s Alex McCarthy all play regular Premier League football.
In that regard, Henderson is said to be ‘kicking his heels’ and becoming ‘impatient’.
As to where it might move to, The Sun on Sunday says that Leeds and Brighton could look at a swoop. Bournemouth has also registered an initial interest.
But while the Red Devils may face a battle to keep Henderson in January, United will have the final say on his future.
