Sheffield United will keep talented goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan until the end of the 2019/20 campaign after reaching an agreement with parent club Manchester United.

The 23-year-old was due to return to Old Trafford upon the expiry of his temporary deal at Bramall Lane, which was due to end on 30th June.

In a statement, the Blades noted that a deal had been struck with Manchester United after “prolonged discussions” between the respective parties in recent weeks.

Henderson was a star of the club’s promotion campaign last season and has made the step up to become one of the best goalkeepers in the English Premier League.

Henderson has excelled during his maiden season in the top-flight, keeping 11 clean sheets and featuring in all except two of the Blades’ games as they seek to secure European football for the first time in their history.

Due to Premier League rules against playing parent clubs, Dean was ineligible for the fixtures against United — a 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane last November and last week’s 3-0 victory at Old Trafford.

The club confirmed that Dutch forward Richairo Zivkovic would also remain in South Yorkshire until the end of the 2019/20 campaign after a deal was agreed with his Chinese parent club, Changchun Yatai.
