The 22-year-old will spend another season at Bramall Lane – after what was a stellar year last season for the young goalkeeper.
Henderson has signed a new deal with the Red Devils and will now get his first taste of Premier League football.
The Blades defence should, therefore, feel a lot more confident this season knowing they have Henderson behind them.
The 22-year-old also heavily invested himself into the club and was often one of the more passionate players on the pitch – which a lot of Blades fans loved.
If Henderson can impress this season, and perhaps play a role in keeping Sheffield United in the Premier League, then he can start to think about Manchester United’s number one spot and also probably England’s.
If he were to have another below-par season and Henderson was to impress, then by the European Championships England could have a new goalkeeper.
However, if Henderson can perform, then not only will he improve his career prospects but also he could be the difference between the Blades staying up or going back into the Championship.
