Henderson is keen to secure first-team football, which will be difficult given David de Gea’s renewed form at Old Trafford.

The United Academy graduate rose to prominence a few years ago after successful consecutive loan spells at Sheffield United, where he helped the Blades climb out of the Championship and then ensured their survival in the Premier League with a remarkable ninth place finish.

He was then integrated into the Red Devils first-team and after a series of impressive performances, he surpassed the struggling De Gea in the pecking order and secured a spot in England’s Euro 2020 squad.

Describing Henderson as a world-class keeper, then-United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed: “He’s going to be England’s No. 1 and Man United’s No. 1 at some point.”

While new United boss Erik ten Hag is yet to fully assess his squad, Henderson is expected to either go on loan or leave permanently for playing time, with a spot in England’s squad for the 2022 World Cup at stake.
