Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that he has denied Dean Henderson the chance to leave Man United in the January transfer window.
He told Talksport: “A couple of weeks ago he [Henderson] asked me [if he could leave] but I told him I’d rather have him stay until the end of the season. We are very happy with our goalkeepers but if it’s up to me I wouldn’t want him to leave.”
The German gaffer also said after Man United’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa that Henderson didn’t play due to illness.
Henderson had asked Ralf to grant him a possible loan move out of Old Trafford a few weeks ago, which the gaffer said no to.
Rangnick apparently wants 3 goalkeepers in his first-team squad and wants to keep Dean as a back-up to David de Gea.
Henderson is growing increasingly unhappy at his situation at Old Trafford and is keeping pushing for a move away.
