Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is set to sign a new deal before being loaned to a Championship club, sources have told ESPN FC.

Henderson's existing deal was due to expire later this month and United feared he could leave following an impressive loan spell in which he helped Shrewsbury Town reach last season's League One playoff final.

The England under-21 international was named in the PFA's League One Team of the Year and a number of clubs were reported to be keen to sign him as a free agent when his contract expired.

However, United have convinced the goalkeeper to extend his stay at the club, where he has played since joining from Carlisle at the age of 14.

Henderson will be behind David De Gea, Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira, but United have high hopes for his future.

They feel he would be best served by going out on loan to a Championship club next term to continue his development.
