Dean Henderson Sheffield United

Solskjaer believes Henderson will become No 1

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims that Dean Henderson will become a first-choice goalkeeper for Manchester United and England as the 23-year-old ''proved'' to be a trustworthy.

Henderson has spent the past two seasons at Sheffield United on loan and he became their main goalkeeper as he helped the team to earn a promotion from the Championship.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to grant their academy product Henderson the permission to spent the elongated 2019/20 season at Bramall Lane.

"Dean has made some great choices over the years and has developed fantastically," said Solskjaer.

"We're looking at that in terms of where he's going to be next season, but as yet that has not been decided.

"This season has proved a great experience for him, he's done himself some favours with his performances, and proved he will be England's No 1 and Man United's No 1 at some point."

Manchester United are currently two points ahead of Sheffield United, having played a game more, as both teams target a spot in the European football.

Recently, David De Gea, who is Manchester United first-choice goalkeeper, has signed a new four-year deal with the Red Devils as there is the option to extend it for a further year.

However, Solskjaer strongly believes that Henderson will continue to improve and he will become a major part of United's squad.

"It's not my job to keep the players happy or in the team or out of it. Part of it is their responsibility of performing and doing well.

"Dean has made some great choices over the years and developed fantastically - and still is."
