Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson joins Stockport on loan


Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson has joined Stockport County on a month-long loan deal.

The highly talented 18-year-old will continue his development with regular first-team football at the League Two club.

Henderson joins a long list of players out on loan from Manchester United this season.

Other U21 keepers such as Sam Johnstone, Kieran O’Hara and Joel Pereira have sealed loan moves away from Old Trafford as well.

The Premier League giants have confirmed the deal on their official website.

Meanwhile, Stockport have confirmed that Henderson could return to Old Trafford for Europa League games if needed.

The 18-year-old is highly rated by the Manchester United academy coaches and a loan move would be highly beneficial for him.

The youngster had an impressive season last year and was shortlisted for United’s Young Player of the Year award.

At six foot two, Henderson provides a commanding presence at the back and is very good with his distribution as well.

The United youth keeper kept eleven clean sheets last season in 25 appearances.

At this stage of his career, he needs to play regularly and although he can do that for United reserves, he will have a better opportunity at a higher level with Stockport.
