Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tom Heaton has reportedly agreed to rejoin the club, with his contract at Aston Villa expiring next month.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tom Heaton has reportedly agreed to rejoin the club this summer.

The 35-year-old is set to leave Aston Villa when his contract expires next month and will become a free agent.

According to The Mirror, Heaton has held talks with United and is keen to return to Old Trafford this summer, where he began his career in the youth academy.

The Red Devils view the former England international as an ideal back-up option to David de Gea and Dean Henderson, with current third-choice stopper Sergio Romero set to leave the club.

After six years with Burnley, Heaton moved to Villa for around £8m in August 2019, but his two-year spell is set to come to an end as Emiliano Martinez has cemented his place as Dean Smith's number one.

The veteran keeper has failed to make a single appearance for the senior team since recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury sustained in January 2020, which ruled him out for 11 months.
