Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Dean Henderson “wants to stay at Man United” amid rumours of clubs circling to take the Manchester United goalkeeper on loan.

Henderson made his European debut against Istanbul Basaksehir and has since gone onto make his senior England bow.

But the 23-year-old is the clear back-up to David De Gea, potentially putting his progress and European Championship hopes in jeopardy.

“I’ve been very happy with the competition that Dean has provided for David and the response from David,” Solskjaer said.

“Dean’s not really put a foot wrong and he’s developing and he’s maturing along the way, which I’m very, very happy with.”

Solskjaer would not confirm whether Henderson would start in the Champions League on Tuesday but insists he will continue to get opportunities this season at United.

“Dean wants to stay at Man United and play for Man United,” he said.

“I can’t see the logic in (suggestions there is) only one potential appearance left before Christmas. Do you know how many games we’ve got?

“I disagree completely. Dean’s come back in, he’s training really well, he’s maturing. He’s had some games.

“He’s training with, for me, one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He’s got potential to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world.”
