Manchester United get Dean Henderson injury boost

 Dean Henderson withdrew from the England squad on Tuesday but he is expected to be available for Man United when next needed.


Dean Henderson is expected to be fit for the start of pre-season with Manchester United despite withdrawing from England's European Championship squad.

Henderson, 24, is out of the Euros due to a hip injury and has been replaced by Sheffield United custodian Aaron Ramsdale.

The Manchester Evening News understands Henderson has suffered a tear in his glute that has prevented him from training in the last week but his recovery time is scheduled to be between two and three weeks.

United's non-European Championship and non-Copa America participants are due to report for pre-season training in mid-July and Henderson should be fit to take part in the opening sessions.

Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly, Brandon Williams, Alex Telles, Nemanja Matic, Andreas Pereira, Amad, Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood are among the players set for a full pre-season.

United have still not announced their pre-season schedule. The club has held discussions about a possible friendly with Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on July 24 and hope to travel to Malta for a training camp in late July and early August.

That trip has still not been officially signed off and the UK government delayed lockdown easing by another four weeks after the planned June 21 unlocking.

Malta is still on the amber list and United have pencilled in a friendly for August 3 to be played behind closed doors.
