Chris Wilder has confirmed that Dean Henderson could return to Bramall Lane next season.
Speaking earlier this week, the Blades boss revealed: "We're in discussions with Manchester United, I went across for the Manchester derby, we've got a great relationship with them.
"To sample that atmosphere walking up to Old Trafford through the tunnel, just gave myself and Alan (Knill) a burst and it was fabulous seeing everyone there.
"We're hopeful having spoken with the powers that be at Manchester United that we can agree a deal for Dean to play for us in the Premier League next year."
Wilder added: "He's a talented young boy who came roaring back from a couple of mistakes at Aston Villa, as did the team, because that was a bitterly disappointing night for everyone and the reaction was fantastic to see."
