Manchester United News: Dean Henderson all-smiles after signing long-term deal

It was all smiles at old Trafford as young goalkeeper Dean Henderson signed a new long-term deal committing himself to Manchester United. The highly rated Stopper put pen to the deal yesterday, with United confirming this in a statement released on twitter. Henderson, 21, had been linked to premier league rivals Arsenal at the beginning of last season. However he has put all doubts to rest with this long-term deal.

The player who was on loan at league 1 side Shrewsbury put in some impressive performance as the club narrowly missed out on promotion. This has convinced the club to tie the player to a long-term deal.

Manchester United have the deepest strength in depth in the goalkeeping position. First choice keeper David de Gea is considered one of the best in the world and has been the best in the league for a while. Backup keeper Sergio Romero is an excellent replacement, and Joel Pereira was hyped towards the end of the season as a long-term replacement for de Gea.

Manchester United fans have expressed their satisfaction with the club committing one of their best prospects to a longterm deal.

United have been active in the transfer market, with the club unveiling young Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot on a £19 million from Porto. The club has also reached an agreement with Ukranian club Shakhtar Donetsk for Brazilian midfielder Fred.
