Sheffield Utd transfer approach indicates Man Utd’s Dean Henderson decision

Sheffield United have reportedly had a bid for Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale rejected – suggesting Man Utd are not willing to let Dean Henderson return to Bramall Lane on loan.

Henderson had another impressive campaign keeping net for The Blades last term, but has since headed back to Old Trafford where his future is uncertain.

It was thought Chris Wilder might make a fresh attempt to loan Henderson again for next season, but it seems United have other ideas for the 23-year-old.

Wilder has instead turned his attentions to Cherries' no.1 Ramsdale, but an offer of £12million has been knocked back by the relegated south coast club, according to Sky Sports .

Ramsdale, 22, was named Bournemouth's Player of the Year after a season which saw them drop back down to the Championship following five years in the top flight.

He was only sold to Bournemouth by Sheffield Utd for £1million in 2017, but the Yorkshire outfit now want him to return.

They were hopeful of retaining Henderson's services for another season, but he is now likely to join up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United squad.

Henderson could even stake a claim to be first choice under Solskjaer following David de Gea's suspect form.

Chelsea have also been linked with a transfer for the England prospect, but United are looking to tie him down to a new contract despite him only renewing terms last summer.

His return could see one of United's current goalkeeping crop offloaded though, with no.2 Sergio Romero prime candidate.

Solskjaer said in June: "We have Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and David de Gea.

"I have a good problem to decide how our goalkeeping department is going to look next year. You can't have three or four top keepers there.

"We need to make sure Dean plays football to develop and he needs games," he added. "We appreciate what Sheffield United have done with him."
