Man Utd goalkeeper Joel Pereira agrees Huddersfield loan transfer with Henderson and De Gea to battle for No1 jersey

MANCHESTER UNITED have sent Portuguese keeper Joel Pereira to Huddersfield Town on loan.

Pereira, who had a season in Scotland with Hearts, is unwanted this season Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – who has already welcomed back Dean Henderson.

SunSport had revealed how the Terriers were keen to tie up a deal for the 24-year-old as they look for two new shot stoppers for their squad.

Henderson, 23, will challenge David De Gea, 29, for United’s No 1 spot after impressing on loan with Sheffield United.

The England keeper signed a new five-year £120,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford.

And he is expected to stay in Manchester to battle it out with De Gea.

It leaves no room for Pereira, who is behind even Sergio Romero in the pecking order.

Pereira has only ever made two United appearances.

And his contract expires next summer, meaning his Old Trafford career could be over.

United’s long-time back-up Romero is also considering his future.

Aston Villa are interested in the Argentine, who wants to battle for his place in a Premier League starting 11.

Leeds and Everton are also said to be eyeing 33-year-old Romero.
