Tottenham Hotspur are considering Dean Henderson as a possible successor to keeper Hugo Lloris, according to reports.

The Cumbrian is on a list of possible signings at the North London club, report the Daily Mail.

Henderson is second-choice at Manchester United and is the subject of speculation linking him with a move to gain first-team football.

Newcastle have been linked with the Whitehaven star while the Mail say Henderson and fellow England international Sam Johnstone of West Brom are on Spurs' radar.

The reports come as France veteran Lloris' contract enters its final months.

His deal is due to end next August.

Henderson, 24, missed the start of the season as he recovered from the effects of Covid-19, with David De Gea holding onto Man Utd's No1 slot since then.

The former Carlisle United academy player, whose first-team progress at Old Trafford benefits the Blues financially, had claimed the first-choice position last season.

He has been limited to one first-team outing so far this season, against West Ham in the Carabao Cup in September.

The Blues would stand to benefit from a sell-on clause should the keeper leave Old Trafford permanently.
