Image for Newcastle United: Fans desperate for Dean Henderson signing to be made

Newcastle United being linked with signings will be a common story for a while, especially with Premier League survival far from guaranteed this season. And, the latest reports have them being linked with a move for Manchester United’s Dean Henderson.

While it would be easy to look at their current squad and pick out players they need all over the pitch, one position that keeps offering a story is the goalkeeper position.

In recent weeks we have seen the likes of Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Thomas Strakosha linked with the Magpies, and although there was a feeling they didn’t need a goalkeeper, it looks like that idea is changing. According to NUFC360 (via The Daily Mirror’s Alan Nixon), Eddie Howe is interested in Henderson from United.

How Newcastle Fans Reacted to the Dean Henderson links

“Henderson is miles ahead of Dubravka and has eight years on him.” @TobyJSpencer

“You wouldn’t want Dean Henderson? Come on now…” @RobPorter9

“People who say we don’t need a goalkeeper fair enough but I’d take him.” @Booyakaa9

“Dubravka injury prone, Darlow, Gillespie, Woodman and the rest ain’t good enough. I’d love Henderson or ter Stegen!” @mickytheroofer

“I’m taking him. Darlow unreliable for me. To have Henderson and an injury prone Dubravka would be stabilising for us.” @wonderbonzi

“Henderson is twice the ‘keeper Dubravka is.” @JHow989

This could be a good move for all parties if it’s true. Newcastle get a ‘keeper that hasn’t got the injury problems Martin Dubravka has and would offer a stable number one. The move would also be good for Henderson; he’s struggled for game time as it looks like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has settled on making David De Gea his number one.

The move could reignite the career of the ‘keeper who has seen his growth stagnate recently with a lack of opportunities. I’m sure Henderson has his eyes set on a 2022 World Cup place with England, so regular football is vital for that.
