Dean Henderson is expected to stay on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United for the final matches of the elongated season, with the goalkeeper agreeing to do so having been decided in principle by the clubs.
Many details may need to be ironed out, although it is expected to be done before June 23 – the deadline for clubs to extend contract players whose terms, according to The Guardian, expire on June 30.

Manchester United ‘s blessing will come as a relief to Sheffield United as the former had the option of recalling Henderson at the end of the month, which means he wouldn’t have played for his loan club in their seven Premier League matches in July when the season is scheduled to end.
The clubs are vying for promotion in the Champions League, with Manchester United finishing fourth, two points ahead of Sheffield United, who has a game in hand. Fifth place will suffice to qualify if next month’s court of arbitration for sport upholds Manchester City ‘s ban from the competition.
Last season Henderson was on loan at Bramall Lane when he helped Sheffield United to get automatic promotion from the Championship and this time out he was excellent for them, earning senior England recognition.
The 23-year-old was in October and November a member of the new international squads. Under the terms of his loan, Henderson won’t play against Manchester United at Old Trafford Wednesday week.
