Sheffield United announce that they have completed the season-long loan signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Manchester United have allowed goalkeeper Dean Henderson to sign a season-long loan deal with Sheffield United.

Henderson has just impressed during a similar period with League One side Shrewsbury Town, and United have rewarded the England Under-21 international with a new contract.

Jose Mourinho has decided that the next step for Henderson's development is a spell in the Championship, and Blades boss Chris Wilder has acknowledged that he is delighted with the deal.

Wilder told the club's official website: "This is a big one for us. Dean was certainly a target for rival clubs in our division.

"Dean is a confident boy, who has proved himself wherever he has been. He had a fantastic season for Shrewsbury, playing a starring role in what they achieved last year."

Henderson becomes the second-tier side's first signing of the summer.
