According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has told goalie Dean Henderson he cannot leave Manchester United on loan next month.

The 24 year old goalkeeper is desperate to leave the club in January in search of regular game time after making just two appearances for the Red Devils this season.

Dutch side Ajax are reportedly interested in signing the Manchester United goalkeeper on loan in January but Rangnick has now blocked any move for the goalkeeper.

Rangnick has told Henderson he wants three first-team ready goalkeepers in his squad and it is believed the pair could end up at loggerheads over the decision.

Henderson is contracted to United until 2025 and earns around £120,000-a-week. He had been told he was due to start the season as the number one goalkeeper but contracted Covid-19 in the second week of pre-season.
