Manchester United have recalled young goalkeeper Dean Henderson from a loan spell with League Two Grimsby Town, with the 19-year-old now on the fringes of the first-team at Old Trafford.
Henderson had spent the first-half of the season on-loan with the League Two minnows and extended his deal until the end of the May just over a week ago. However, the plans for the youngster have now changed and he could get a taste of the first-team.
Grimsby revealed in a statement on their website that Henderson had been recalled due to a ‘significant’ injury to a first-team goalkeeper at Manchester United.
“Grimbsy Town Football Club can confirm that Manchester United have re-called on loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson with immediate effect.
“Dean has been recalled by his parent club due to a significant injury to one of their first team goalkeepers. In his short stay with the Mariners, Henderson made 7 appearances keeping 4 clean sheets in the process.
“We would like to thank Dean for all his efforts during his time here and wish him every success in the future.”
Manchester United have said that Henderson is available for the first-team this weekend, hinting that he could be on the bench, but there is no word from the Red Devils as to which goalkeeper has suffered the aforementioned injury.
