Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is ready to step up and replace David De Gea.

De Gea has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid and appears to set to leave the club.

Henderson could be handed an opportunity to establish himself in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven when his agreement at Bramall Lane expires.

But, asked to outline his long-term career plans, the England under-21 international used the question to deliver a coded message to his parent club and reaffirm his commitment to Wilder’s team.

 “All I’m focused on is getting Sheffield United to the Premier League,” Henderson said. “Nothing else.

“That’s my aim this year, the bigger picture looks after itself. If they (Manchester United) don’t see what I’m doing, that’s their problem at the end of the day. Cream rises to the top.”

The Sheffield United loanee said: “If they are not seeing what I am doing then that’s their problem at the end of the day. I will keep doing what I am doing and the cream rises to the top.”

Henderson produced a superb performance at New York Stadium but was powerless to prevent Jamie Proctor scoring the 92nd-minute equaliser. Mark Duffy had earlier given the visitors the lead before Chris Basham restored their advantage following Jon Taylor’s strike.
