Norwich and Bristol City battling to sign Premier League goalkeeper
Both Norwich City and Bristol City are chasing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to The Mirror.
The shot stopper spent last season on loan at Shrewsbury Town and his impressive performances helped the club reach the League One Playoff final.
However, despite another good performance from Henderson at Wembley, Shrewsbury lost 2-1 to Rotherham in extra time.
He played 48 games for the club in all competitions and recorded 16 clean sheets during his time in Shropshire.
However, it is now understood that a number of Championship clubs are tracking the shot stopper, with Norwich and Bristol City at the front of the que.
Norwich’s number one last season was local lad Angus Gunn, on loan from Manchester City.
Gunn came second in the club’s Player of the Year competition but is unlikely to return to Carrow Road next season.
The Canaries currently have three goalkeepers on the books in Norfolk.
Remi Matthews, who spent last season on loan at Plymouth Argyle, Paul Jones, who also spent time away on loan with Exeter City, and Michael McGovern, who has been told he can leave by Daniel Farke.
With no recognised number one, Henderson could solve the goalkeeping crisis for the Yellows.
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson watched Henderson on several of occasions last season and is keening on bringing the youngster to Ashton Gate.
Luke Steele recently departed the club after his contract had come to an end, and there are a number of question marks hanging above Frank Fielding’s future at the Robins.
Henderson will be a man in demand this summer, but it looks like it will be a battle between the Canaries and the Robins for his signature.
