Dean Henderson said farewell to Sheffield United on Wednesday as the goalkeeper revealed that he will not be spending next season at Bramall Lane.
Henderson spent the last two seasons on loan from Manchester United, joining Sheffield United following prior loan spells at Stockport County, Grimsby Town and Shrewsbury Town.
After making 46 appearances in the Blades’ promotion campaign in 2018-19, Henderson was once again a star as the club sealed a ninth-place finish in their first season back in the Premier League.

Having emerged as one of the country’s top goalkeepers, Henderson’s future has been up in the air, with Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remaining steadfast in his commitment to No.1 David de Gea.
The Spaniard has said that he expects to keep his job as starter even if Henderson does return the club, as he has backed himself to remain Solskjaer’s go-to goalkeeper.
Backup Sergio Romero, meanwhile, faces an uncertain future, opening the door for Henderson to return as De Gea’s understudy.

Sheffield had been hoping to keep hold of Henderson for another year, despite the signing of Aaron Ramsdale, but the goalkeeper has now said his goodbyes after two seasons at Bramall Lane.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Sheffield United for the last two years,” Henderson wrote. “Winning promotion to the Premier League with my brothers and having the season we had this season is something I will never forget
“I would like to thank the manager, my team-mates, the backroom staff and of course, the fans, who have been unbelievable towards me. I will look back at the last two years as an important chapter in my career and more than anything, I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and develop with such a class group of lads.
“I can’t wait for the next chapter! Once again, thank you for everything! Once a blade, always a blade!”
