Dean Henderson was omitted from the Manchester United squad for the FA Cup third round clash against Aston Villa due to ongoing talks over his future.

The England international was expected to start at Old Trafford tonight having been limited to just two appearances in all competitions this season.

But the Manchester Evening News report his absence is related to efforts to secure him a loan move away from Old Trafford during the January transfer window.

Henderson shared first-team duties with David de Gea last season but has remained firmly behind the Spaniard this term.

The former Sheffield United loanee has reportedly informed interim boss Ralf Rangnick of his desire to leave the club in order to boost his chances of making the England squad for next winter’s World Cup.

Rangnick is reluctant to let him leave however, with the German keen to keep three senior goalkeepers in the squad with Tom Heaton currently third choice.

Tottenham and Newcastle United are interested in signing Henderson.

Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo also miss Monday’s clash along with Anthony Martial who has requested to leave the club.

The France international has made it clear he wants to leave on loan this month, with Sevilla and now Newcastle United interested in taking him on a deal until the end of the season.

Sevilla have already seen an offer rejected by the Red Devils.
