Newcastle United are really keen on sealing a deal in January for wantaway Manchester United ace Dean Henderson.
Since gaining the status of the richest club in the world, the Toon Army has been ready to dip into the transfer market.
They have already sealed a £12million move for Kieran Trippier and are looking to bring in additional reinforcements.
The Geordies are eyeing a new goalkeeper and have placed Henderson on their radar.
The Man United shot-stopper has struggled for game-time at Old Trafford this season after having failed to displace David de Gea from the No 1 spot.
The 24-year-old did request a move away from the club two weeks ago, but it was met with a firm rejection by Ralf Rangnick.
The German boss is very clear on his intentions of having three top goalkeepers at the club for the remainder of the season.
This move is not really beneficial for Man United. Letting him join another Premier League side is not going to do us any good.
The Man United academy graduate may not be playing a lot of football at the moment, but he is the long-term option for us, especially since De Gea has 18 months left on his contract and is yet to pen an extension.
Moreover, it has been made clear to the player that a transfer in January is out of the question.
If the Spanish goalkeeper picks up an injury or contracts the Covid-19 disease, we need somebody to deputize for him and perform the job seamlessly.
Despite all his experience, it would not be wise to make Tom Heaton the starting goalkeeper at any point this season.
