Man Utd keeper Joel Pereira set to be sent on loan transfer to Huddersfield after Dean Henderson’s return

MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to send Portuguese keeper Joel Pereira to Huddersfield Town on loan.

Pereira had a season in Scotland with Hearts and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants him to go out again for games.

The Terriers are keen to tie up a deal quickly as they are looking for two new shot stoppers for their squad.

Meanwhile, at Old Trafford, it looks like Dean Henderson will challenge David De Gea for United’s No 1 spot.

Henderson, 23, spent last season on loan with Sheffield United.

Now he is on the verge of signing a new four-year deal worth £100,000 a week, as revealed by SunSport.

The England goalkeeper signed a new £60k-a-week deal just last year.

But it is a clear sign that Solskjaer wants Hendo to battle with the Spaniard to be first choice between the sticks.

It also means United would be splashing out £575k a week just on their goalkeepers, with Spaniard De Gea earning £350k, Sergio Romero (£70k) and Lee Grant (£30k).

Henderson had another standout campaign on loan with the Blades.

And the Manchester United academy product’s representatives have been in talks with Old Trafford chiefs over the last few weeks.

His new deal will also come with the option of a further 12 months, which can be activated at any time.

SunSport understands there had been interest in Henderson from Chelsea, but no official approach has been made.
