Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reminded David de Gea that Dean Henderson is ready and waiting for the chance to become Manchester United’s No1 goalkeeper.

Returning from his loan spell at Sheffield United last summer, Henderson has signed a new contract with the Red Devils and became a back-up to De Gea at the club.

The 23-year-old has made 10 first-team appearances for United since his come back to Old Trafford, while he is set to be included in tonight’s FA Cup squad against West Ham.

“Dean has done very well when he’s got the chance and he’s matured,” Solskjaer said. “For me, he’s developed his game.

“I know he’s not played as many games as he would’ve done last season, but you see every game when he plays and in training his improvement, working hard on a couple of aspects that we’ve spoke about with him.

“I’ve been impressed with his attitude and workrate. Of course he’s, how to say… he’s not the most patient guy.

“He wants to play every game because he knows that he’ll perform well, so long may it continue because he’s improved since he’s come here.”
