Man United recall Dean Henderson from Grimsby after Joel Pereira injury

Manchester United have recalled Dean Henderson from his loan spell at Grimsby Town after third-choice goalkeeper Joel Pereira sustained an injury.

Henderson, 19, joined Grimsby last summer on a six-month loan deal, before extending his stay with the League Two side until the end of the season in January.

However, after Pereira -- who came off the bench to make his United debut in the 4-0 FA Cup defeat of Wigan last week -- picked up an injury, the Red Devils have opted to cut short Henderson's loan stint.

Henderson, who has yet to play for United, is now eligible to be included in Jose Mourinho's matchday squad for Sunday's Premier League game against Leicester City if needed.

The teenager made seven senior appearances for Grimsby in League Two this season, keeping clean sheets in three of his last four outings in January.

Pereira was recalled from his spell at Portuguese side Belenenses last month after fellow goalkeeper Sam Johnstone was allowed to join Aston Villa on loan for the remainder of the season.
