Henderson in Tottenham Hotspur’s Radar
Tottenham Hotspur are making moves to signing Dean Henderson from Manchester United in the summer transfer window, per says the British media.
The 23-year-old has spent the season on loan at Sheffield United, enjoying a superb campaign as Chris Wilder’s side eyes Europa League qualification.
Only Nick Pope at Burnley has kept more clean sheets in the Premier League this season and the report states that Spurs could make a move to try to take the sensational goalkeeper to north London.
A bid of £22 million is mooted but it remains to be seen if the Blades will attempt to rival that attempt to secure Henderson’s signature, or if United will be keen to keep him as back-up to their current first choice goalkeeper David De Gea.
There is also the possibility that another loan deal could be up United’s street, given that the goalkeeper has been in such exceptional form and has even earned a call-up to the England squad.
Henderson, though, would be a top signing for Spurs, who have not had to sign a new first-choice goalkeeper since 2012, when they snaffled Hugo Lloris away from Lyon.
Lloris is now 33 and has made some significant errors this season and last; bringing in competition for the France international is a solid idea, and could well lead to him being usurped as the club’s No.1.
