Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has had a transfer request rejected this month, interim manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed.
Henderson made 13 appearances in the Premier League last season and was expected to challenge David De Gea for the number one shirt this season.
However, the England international has not featured in the league this campaign and has made only two appearances in all competitions.
Rangnick has revealed that Henderson has asked to leave the club this month but his request was turned down.
“A couple of weeks ago he asked me but I told him I’d rather have him stay until the end of the season,” Rangnick told talkSPORT following Monday's 1-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup third round.
“We are very happy with our goalkeepers but if it’s up to me I wouldn’t want him to leave.”
talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook says Henderson is ‘really unhappy’ with his lack of game time this season and is determined to leave the club.
Newcastle are said to be interested in the 24-year-old, who has conceded just 25 goals in his 28 appearances for United.
The Magpies are keen to sign reinforcements in January as they look to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
Former United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich believes Henderson needs to leave Old Trafford to secure regular first-team football.
“I think he should go. He’s at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular football,” Bosnich told talkSPORT.
“He’ll know that as well. I understand that at the start of the season, him having a go in pre-season to see how things plan out.
“De Gea has been excellent and there’s no doubt about it, with the exception of the second goal you have to say against Manchester City, which I think he’ll know that he should have saved.
“But I think from Dean Henderson’s point of view, he needs to start looking after Dean Henderson.
“Newcastle are a club who are on the go and on the move but they are also in a perilous position right now.
“New manager. It’s important to get your spin right and the goalkeeper is the integral part of that.
“He should go and should go as soon as he possibly can.”
