According to a report from the Daily Mail, Dean Henderson is set to sign a new three-year deal at Manchester United before heading out on loan to the Championship, with Leeds amongst those interested in signing the 21-year-old.

Henderson is arguably one of the brightest prospects currently coming through at Old Trafford. The goalkeeper spent this past season on loan at Shrewsbury, and nearly helped the side secure promotion out of League One before they were denied in the play-off final by Rotherham.

There had been plenty of speculation over his future with Chelsea and Arsenal among those keen on signing him permanently this summer, but the Mail reports that he is set to commit to the Red Devils by signing a new three-year contract with Jose Mourinho's men.

But it appears that he could be on his way out immediately, with the Mail adding that the club are lining up a loan move to the Championship for the youngster, and he may well end up with several options to pick from.

The Mail suggests that Stoke are interested in Henderson amid speculation surrounding Jack Butland, while Leeds and Bristol City are also keen on potentially handing him a chance for next season.

Leeds certainly need to bolster their goalkeeping ranks this summer after a turbulent campaign that saw Bailey Peacock-Farrell establish himself as the best performing option in the current ranks having began the campaign struggling to secure a regular spot in the under-23s.

With Henderson only a prospect himself - but clearly an excellent one - it is perhaps surprising that the Whites would consider a loan deal for him rather than pursue a more experienced option to take Peacock-Farrell under his wing for a couple of years.
