Man Utd star Dean Henderson set for axe with Tottenham and Dortmund leading transfer race for keeper and De Gea to stay

DEAN HENDERSON looks on course to leave Manchester United.

And reports suggest Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund are leading the chase to sign the goalkeeper.

As revealed by SunSport, United plan to get rid of one of Henderson or David De Gea at the end of the season.

Sky Sports add the academy graduate is growing 'increasingly frustrated at a lack of opportunities' since returning from a two-year loan with Sheffield United.

It is thought Spurs and Dortmund both want to sign the England international.

Chelsea and West Ham have also been linked.

Spurs' No1 and captain Hugo Lloris will enter the final year of his deal in North London this summer.

He is being lined up by ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino for a reunion at Paris Saint-Germain.

Dortmund's Champions League pedigree may also help their cause should the Bundesliga side try and lure another young English star to Germany.

Henderson, 23, signed a five-year deal at Old Trafford in August worth £120,000 per week – which could price Spurs out of a move.


A boyhood Red Devils fan, the stopper would ideally want to stay with the club but only as No1 choice rather than De Gea's understudy.

De Gea has played almost 2,500 minutes this season while understudy Dean Henderson has just surpassed 1,000 – the vast majority of which have come in the cups.

However, there are growing calls for the £350,000-a-week Spaniard to be dropped.

He has conceded five of his last eight Premier League shots on target from inside the box while Paul Scholes labelled him a 'real problem'.
