Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals that Dean Henderson wants to stay at Manchester United
The young Englishman returned to United this summer after a successful two-year loan at Sheffield United. Despite overtaking Sergio Romero in the pecking order, Henderson has found David de Gea a harder challenge to displace.
De Gea is the number one at the club. The Spaniard has looked better this season and is steadily closing in on his best.
With the Spaniard preventing Henderson from taking his spot, the youngster has had limited opportunities so far.
The lack of regular game time has also impacted his chances of taking the number one spot for England. Gareth Southgate has informed Henderson that he needs to move in order to make him his top choice in goal. (h/t The Express)
It was reported earlier that the player could move to Celtic on loan in order to get regular game time. Solskjaer has however poured cold water on these reports.
“Dean wants to stay at Man United and play for Man United.”
Solskjaer also dismissed the notion that Tuesday’s match against Istanbul Basaksehir is a make or break game for Henderson. He advocated the need to impress and revealed that as long as a player performs, they will not be short of opportunities.
“I don’t buy that argument that it’s a make-or-break for him.”

The fact that an error-prone Jordan Pickford was picked to face Belgium showcases Henderson needs to do more to cement himself as the starting goalkeeper for England.
Whether he can manage to do that staying at United remains to be seen.
