11pm Man Utd transfer news LIVE: January targets, Cavani faces FA racism probe, Van de Beek’s swollen ankle


Roy Keane believes Man Utd’s second choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson has a ‘nightmare’ situation at Old Trafford.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s a nightmare scenario for him. He wants to play for Man United, of course he does.

“Being in goal for Sheffield United and Man United every week is completely different, but he had to go back. Ole wanted to see him and work with him closely.

“You want to get better by playing the games, you can do all the training sessions you want, but if you’re not playing every week, the kid’s gonna go backwards – and that’s gonna cost him, ultimately.

“For example, if Pickford has a difficult spell – which he always seems to be, in my eyes – then it’s probably difficult for Gareth to go and pick a goalkeeper who’s not playing regularly.

“It’s a difficult situation for Henderson. Come January, do United really wanna let him go out on loan? I don’t think so, because then they need cover for De Gea in case something happens to him.”
