Reported Newcastle United transfer target Dean Henderson will reportedly be allowed to leave Manchester United on loan.

According to a report from The Sun on Sunday, the Red Devils are ready to give the green light to the 24-year-old to make a temporary move.

The club will supposedly let Henderson head out for 18 months, meaning whichever club gets him can have him for the whole of next season.

Henderson has been forced back into the shadows at Old Trafford this season.

Last term he was neck-and-neck with David De Gea for the number one jersey.

But the Spaniard has produced some fantastic form in 2021/22 so far.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have really struggled, but De Gea has probably been their standout player.

It has meant Henderson has had to warm the bench for most of the season. He hasn’t gotten any Premier League minutes so far, making just one Carabao Cup appearance.

There have been question marks about his future, and it seems he could now be heading out in January.

It was reported earlier this week that St. James’ Park was an option for Henderson.

Dean Henderson loan, if Dubravka leaves

There are other positions that Newcastle’s new owners need to be addressing before the goalkeeper.

A couple of centre-backs, a creative midfielder and another striker should be the priorities.

Dean Henderson is a great goalkeeper, but Newcastle should only really be looking to get him in on loan if Martin Dubravka leaves.

The Slovakia international is a proven performer in the Premier League.

If he pushes to depart in January, then Newcastle will have a problem.

Karl Darlow has not had the best of seasons so far, and Newcastle would need to upgrade on him if Dubravka did go.

One would have thought Freddie Woodman will be off on loan again in January, after struggling in the opening games for the Magpies.
