Leeds United are interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer, according to a report.

The Daily Mail claims that the 21-year-old is set to pen a new three-year deal at Old Trafford, before leaving the Premier League giants on loan next season to join a Championship club.

It is understood that Leeds, Stoke City and Bristol City are all named as potential candidates for the 6ft 2in (source: Transfermarkt) colossus.

Football Insider verdict: 

Leeds desperately need a new goalkeeper to compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell next season and snapping up Henderson on loan from old rivals Man United would be a brilliant piece of business. The England Under-21 international starred on loan for Shrewsbury Town last season, keeping 19 clean sheets in 48 appearances across all competitions. The fact he is set for a new deal with Man United shows how highly rated he is by Jose Mourinho’s side and definitely has a bright future in the game. Leeds’ promotion bid last season was definitely wounded by their issues in goal and a team vying at the top-end of the Championship table needs a safe pair of gloves in-between the sticks. Henderson has proven he is a commanding figure inside his penalty area and his distribution is sound too. Leeds’ vacant managerial spot needs filling sooner rather than later, but whoever is in charge should approve of trying to land Henderson.
