Dean Henderson has been tipped as a future England number one by Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Whitehaven-born goalkeeper has impressed while on loan at Sheffield United from Old Trafford, helping them win promotion to the Premier League and excelling in the top flight.

And Solskjaer said he is confident Henderson will be the first choice for the keeper's jersey for both England and Manchester United in the future.

“Dean has made some great choices over the years and has developed fantastically,” Solskjaer told the Mirror.

“We’re looking at that in terms of where he’s going to be next season, but as yet that has not been decided.

“This season has proved a great experience for him, he’s done himself some favours with his performances and proved he will be England’s No.1 and Man United’s No.1 at some point.”

Sheffield United are hopeful they will keep hold of Henderson on another year's loan next season but Solskjaer is keeping tight lipped about the shot-stopper's future.

Henderson is keen to become number one at Old Trafford with David de Gea standing in his way but he also wants to play regular first team football.

The 23-year-old’s form has also put him in the national spotlight with Gareth Southgate watching the former Whitehaven Miners and Carlisle United star.
