Bournemouth and Fulham are in the running for the signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has reportedly done so.
Henderson has barely played for the Red Devils this season, appearing in just three games in all competitions.
United are trying to secure the 25-year-old’s move from the club and are willing to pay at least half of his £120,000-a-week salary.
According to The Sun, Bournemouth is leading the race to sign Henderson on loan but will face competition from Fulham.
Both clubs have been promoted to the Premier League next season and are looking to add experience to their squads.
Henderson played a full season in the Premier League for Sheffield United in 2019-20 on a successful loan spell.
But after being brought back to Old Trafford to challenge David De Gea, he failed to snap at the Spaniard despite spending a brief stint as the club’s No1 last season.
After making 26 appearances last season, Henderson has since fallen out of favor at United as Erik ten Hag is reportedly trying to sign a new No2 and No3 for the Manchester club.
Henderson’s lack of playing time has seen him lose his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad and with the World Cup looming, the United Academy graduate is looking to restart his career.
In terms of replacing Henderson, United are reportedly looking to re-sign Sam Johnstone from West Brom.
The 29-year-old is a free agent this summer and spent seven years with the Red Devils before leaving in 2018.
However, they have to fend off Tottenham Hotspur who are also interested in Johnstone to replace Hugo Lloris.
