Dean Henderson wants to leave Manchester United if he cannot reclaim the number one position, with Newcastle ‘an option’ for the out of favour goalkeeper.
Henderson has made just one appearance for the Red Devils this season and will reportedly look to leave the club should he fail to regain the number one position from David de Gea before the end of the season.
The 24-year-old made 26 appearances in all competitions last season as he competed with De Gea for first-choice status, but he has fallen behind the Spaniard in the pecking order this season and is ready to quit the club should his situation not change.
The Mail are reporting that Henderson would consider leaving during the January transfer window with Newcastle a potential option, though Manchester United are unlikely to consider his sale mid-season.
Henderson is keen to secure regular first-team football after being omitted from the past three England squads, the goalkeeper having not been included by Gareth Southgate since missing Euro 2020 with a hip injury.
Jordan Pickford, Sam Johnstone and Aaron Ramsdale have been named as the Three Lions’ goalkeepers for November’s World Cup qualifiers, with Johnstone featuring regularly in the Championship at West Brom and the latter having impressed since a summer move to Arsenal.
