Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson.

The 23-year-old returned to Old Trafford in the summer after a successful loan spell with Sheffield United with the hope of holding down a regular starting berth for Manchester United.

However, David De Gea has been preferred over him this season and the young goalkeeper is keen on leaving the Red Devils in search of regular first-team football now.

Apparently, the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in signing him.

Tottenham could definitely use a long term replacement for Hugo Lloris and Henderson would be a sensational signing for them.

It will be interesting to see if the Londoners can agree on a fee with the Red Devils at the end of this season.

Spurs urged to get rid of duo

Meanwhile, pundit Jamie O’Hara has urged Tottenham to get rid of two players who are holding back Jose Mourinho‘ side.

According to him, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez have cost Tottenham defensively this season and they are one of the worst partnerships in the Premier League.

“It’s getting embarrassing, isn’t it,” O’Hara told. “We should be turning West Ham over!

“I don’t think we’re going to win anything this season, I think we’ll end up trophyless again, I really do.

“I look at the team and the back-four is just an absolute shambles. I don’t know why Jose keeps playing [Davinson] Sanchez and [Eric] Dier because it’s probably one of the worst partnerships in the Premier League!

There is no doubt that the Londoners need to improve defensively and it remains to be seen if Mourinho decides to proceed with a defensive overhaul in the summer.
