Newcastle United are considering to return for Dean Henderson this summer, having failed to sign the goalkeeper in January.
The Tyneside-based club have seen their fortunes dramatically transformed following their takeover in 2021.
Newcastle spent over £80m in the January transfer window, and were prepared to bring in more players, including Henderson and Jesse Lingard, to maintain their Premier League status.
Now that Eddie Howe’s side, who convincingly beat Arsenal on Monday night, are guaranteed to play another season in England’s top flight, they are planning to enhance their squad even further.
As per the Manchester Evening News, Newcastle are considering a £40 million deal for the Man United academy graduate in the summer window, after they missed out on his signature on deadline day.
A proposed winter loan move collapsed due to Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka’s reluctance to move to United to replace Henderson.
The England international was open to leave in January due to lack of game time under Ralf Rangnick. Now, he intends to depart the club either on loan or permanently if his situation remains unchanged under the new manager.
In case Henderson or any other notable player in the goalkeeping department leaves, United are expected to sign a back-up shot-stopper.
