Sheffield United are hoping to sign Aaron Ramsdale from Bournemouth as a replacement for loanee Dean Henderson, according to The Sun.

Ramsdale has had a good season with the Cherries despite playing in a faltering side.

And he could be in line for a Premier League return with Sheffield United next season, with the South Yorkshire club needing to replace Man Utd loanee Dean Henderson.


FEATURE: The ‘worst’ Premier League XI of the season


Ramsdale could cost the Blades around £15 million this summer. It would be a clever move for manager Chris Wilder as Ramsdale is a current England U21 international and promising young keeper.

Henderson looks set to re-join his boyhood club after a breakthrough Premier League season on loan. The No.1 registered 13 clean sheets and was part of one of the best defensive sides in the division.

His dominant performances mean United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a hard decision to make between Henderson and David De Gea. The Spaniard has been unconvincing this season and could be dropped if his form doesn’t improve.

If Solskjaer and Wilder are unable to accommodate him, then Chelsea could swoop in and buy Henderson to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Ramsdale, meanwhile is a former Blades academy graduate who left to join Bournemouth back in 2017. Wilder sold him for around £1 million but now looks set to bring the shot-stopper back to Bramall Lane.

The move would be a tough one for Eddie Howe and Bournemouth, as they will not want to lose one of their prized young stars. However, the transfer free could help them to bounce back and get immediate promotion to the Premier League following their relegation this season.

The Blades have long been searching for a replacement for Henderson. They’ve been linked with Trabzonspor’s Ugurcan Cakir and Fenerbahce’s Altay Bayindir in the past few months.
