Jose Enrique has tipped English Premier League outfit Newcastle United to move with speed and acquire the services of Manchester United ‘outcast’ Dean Henderson.
The goalkeeper has been struggling for playing time at Old Trafford under former Red Devils’ managers Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.
Even with the arrival of Erik ten Hag as the new Manchester United head coach, Henderson stands little chance of getting minutes in the coming season at the expense of first-choice keeper David De Gea.
Henderson was a target for Newcastle in January and is still on their radar.
As a reshuffle of goalkeepers at St James Park looms, Enrique believes Henderson is the perfect fit for Newcastle.
“I would definitely sign Dean Henderson. I’ve said I like him a lot in the past. He’s a great goalkeeper,” Enrique said.
“Dubravka is doing well, but Henderson would be a good fit in the long run, and Newcastle’s back-ups aren’t good enough at the moment.”
“Henderson will be looking for a move too, as with the form De Gea is in now, he’s not going to play.”
Dean Henderson made just eight appearances in all competitions last season for Manchester United as the club recorded one of their worst seasons in both English and European competitions.
