Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson continues to shine with his performances with Nottingham Forest. This time it was a home defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, but despite losing, he was once again the best player on his team, where he will spend the rest of this season, hoping to get selected by Gareth Southgate in the England squad for the World Cup.

Today, the 25-year-old goalkeeper had a great match against Antonio Conte’s team despite conceding two goals. The Englishman did 42 touches, 34 passes, 22 long balls, 4 saves, 1 clearance, and saved 1 penalty kick from non-other than Harry Kane. the 29-year-old striker had scored 21 of his last 21 penalties.

While the former Manchester United academy player keeps enjoying life with the Tricky Trees, Erik ten Hag and United are currently working on signing Martin Dúbravka from Newcastle on a loan deal with an option to buy until the end of the season. The Magpies haven’t accepted the offer, but both clubs will soon come to an agreement.

After David De Gea’s shocking performance against Brentford, where he made two mistakes that ended up in goals for the Bees, Manchester United's manager was convinced that some new goalkeeper was needed as soon as possible who can provide competition to the 31-year-old Spanish keeper this season.

He could still return

Although Dúbravka’s arrival at Old Trafford seems inevitable, the Slovakian is 33 years old and would only serve as a short-term solution down the sticks. Dean Henderson is just 25 and has a lot of years left in the tank. Maybe Erik ten Hag can have a talk with him at the end of the season so he can convince him to stay.
