Arsenal conceded over 60 goals last term, following an awful collective defensive performance and in light of this, Arsenal have been linked with a number of new keepers to replace Petr Cech.
Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson is one of the names the club has been linked to, but unfortunately for The Gunners the 21-year ace has snubbed Arsenal’s interest by extending his contract with the Red Devils.
Henderson said in The Daily Mail:
“Coming off the back of last season and playing games at Shrewsbury and having a good season there, to return to the biggest club in the world and put pen-to-paper again is a great achievement for me and my family. It’s another dream come true. Obviously, there was a lot of interest after last season, when I’ve done myself well going out and playing but, look, United are the biggest club in the world and have been my club since day one so, of course, they are always first in my mind. All my family are here with me now and it’s an honour. To come from where we started from, from nothing, to come all this way is fantastic and I’m just really delighted..”
Henderson is an England Under 21 International and spent last season on loan in League One at Shrewsbury Town. He kept 19 clean sheets and was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year.
It’s understood that Chelsea were also showing a keen interest in landing him, but London’s two most successful clubs will now have to look elsewhere for other options.
Henderson signed a two-year deal with Manchester United meaning he will remain at the Old Traffordmis until 2020.
