Stoke City and Fulham have joined the race to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to The Sun.

The highly-rated shot stopper is expected to leave Manchester United this summer for more first-team opportunities. Bristol City have been linked with a move for him but will now face competition for his signature.

Henderson has become a man in demand after impressing on loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town. He played 48 games in all competitions for the Shrews and his performances look to be rewarded with a move higher up the football pyramid for the next campaign.

The 21-year-old has never made a senior appearance for Manchester United but has had loan spells at Stockport County, Grimsby Town and Shrewsbury so far in his career.

Henderson is now a target for newly promoted Premier League side Fulham. They are in the hunt for a new goalkeeper as their current number two, David Button, is looking likely to leave them to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Championship side Stoke City are also being credited with an interest in Henderson. Their first-choice goalkeeper, Jack Butland, could leave them this summer with a move back to the Premier League and the Potters see Henderson as an ideal replacement.

Dean Henderson looks set for a big future in the game and he would be a great asset for one of Fulham, Stoke or Bristol City.
