Newcastle pour cold water on Dean Henderson links

A major update has emerged regarding Newcastle United and Dean Henderson ahead of the summer transfer window… 

What’s the talk?

Shields Gazette journalist Dominic Scurr has revealed that the Magpies have poured cold water on reports that the England international is set to arrive at St. James’ Park.

He tweeted: “Reports suggesting #MUFC goalkeeper Dean Henderson is on the verge of completing a move to #NUFC. But sources at Newcastle have been quick to play down the story.”

The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards followed this up with a tweet of his own, saying: “#nufc will not be signing goalkeeper Dean Henderson anytime soon.”

This comes after Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News claimed that the shot-stopper was close to signing for the Tyneside club and had travelled to the northeast for talks.

Supporters will be gutted

Magpies supporters will be gutted with this latest update, as it suggests that Henderson is not on his way Newcastle this summer. A deal has not been completely ruled out but the tweets from Kelly and Edwards do not make it sound like the 25-year-old is an active target for the club at this moment in time.

Do Newcastle need a new goalkeeper?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He is a proven top-flight performer and a player who could be a major signing for Eddie Howe for many years to come, which is why Toon fans will likely not be happy with this news.

In 48 Premier League appearances, the 25-year-old kept 17 clean sheets across the 2019/20 and 2020/21 campaigns. He averaged a SofaScore rating of 7.00 for Sheffield United and 6.94 for the Red Devils respectively, which shows that he maintained a high standard of performance throughout both seasons in the top flight.

This means that he would likely be able to hit the ground running for Newcastle, as he knows exactly what it takes to perform at this level. He has recent experience of putting in excellent displays on a regular basis in the Premier League, which suggests that he would provide significant competition to Martin Dubravka for his place in the Newcastle team.

Who cost Newcastle the most?

At the age of 25, Henderson also has plenty of time left in his career to develop and improve even further. He is eight years younger than the Slovakia international, and the Manchester United shot-stopper has the potential to be Howe’s number one for the next decade if he moves to St James’ Park and proves to be a success on the pitch.

Therefore, Magpies fans will surely be gutted by the club pouring cold water on claims that he is set to join them…
