Dean Henderson Hits Out At 'Hurtful And False' Internet Rumours Which Claim He's The Premier League Star Arrested For Assaulting His Girlfriend

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has hit out at "hurtful and totally false" rumours circulating on social media.

Henderson released a public statement on Monday following reports that an unnamed Premier League player had been arrested for assaulting their girlfriend.

England international Henderson has strongly denied he is the player involved.

He wrote on Instagram: "Can't believe I'm having to do this but I'd just like to address the rumours that have come to light in the last couple of days.

"There are some sad people in the world that have attached my name to such inappropriate, hurtful and totally false news stories.

"I have a family who have been affected by this so wanted to put the rumours to bed and move on."

The Sun claim that a Premier League player, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested in 2019 for attacking their girlfriend and sending abusive messages.

The player is said to have an agreed an out-of-court settlement with the woman, which included a five-figure sum.

According to the report, the police have confirmed they were called to the incident but the player faced no further action because a “community resolution” was agreed.

The player involved is said to be 'tipped for international honours' - which would appear to rule out Henderson, who made his debut for England in 2020.

The report comes after Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood, 20, was arrested and bailed last month on suspicion of rape, assault and threats to kill.

A source told The Sun: “This is quite disturbing, especially coming after the claims about Greenwood.

“In this case, the footballer used his money to get lawyers to sort it out for him and keep it out of the public eye.

“He reached a settlement and that has effectively silenced the girl in question and stopped court action.

“Her claims though were very serious, and included at least one allegation of domestic assault.”
