Dean Henderson

The Daily Mirror has reported that Sheffield United’s on-loan keeper Dean Henderson (from Manchester United) aims to use his Bramall Lane career as a huge stepping stone and realise his dream of being England’s Number One in four years time at the next World Cup.

Henderson has joined the Blades on a season’s long loan and is expected to make his debut later today at home to Swansea City.

England had a magnificent World Cup and exceeded pre-tournament expectations by reaching the semi-finals. Everton keeper Jordan Pickford was a number of inspirational players who stood out for Gareth Southgate’s side. Having witnessed his counterparts exploits Henderson sees no reason as to why he cannot be the one in the limelight in Qatar 2022.

The shot-stopper already has first team experience and at the age of 21 has already played over 50 games on loan at various clubs. He made the vast majority last season at Shrewsbury Town as they narrowly lost in the Play-Off Final to Rotherham.

He told the Daily Mirror; “This will help me massively to go ­forward, play on a bigger stage in front of bigger crowds, build my profile and hopefully have a chance to get my first senior call.”

Great to see how ambitious he is, I can’t say I’m that keen on the loan system but this one looks like it could well work in our favour doesn’t it?  Agree or disagree?  Let me know in the article comments.
