Dean Henderson’s Transfer to Newcastle Blocked by Martin Dúbravka’s Rejection

Martin Dúbravka from Newcastle rejected Manchester United’s offer to move him on loan. The deadline day offer was an exchange between the two football clubs where Newcastle could have had Dean Henderson, and Man United would have welcomed a backup goalkeeper through Dúbravka. 

Manchester United currently has David de Gea as their goalkeeper, and in the negotiations, Newcastle kept in consideration Man United’s need for a backup goalkeeper in their want for Henderson. 

The rejection from Dúbravka was motivated by his refusal to become David de Gea’s second. The same reason motivated Henderson’s transfer, as being second to de Gea essentially lessened his chances to play. Talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick led to the deal with Newcastle, which ultimately fell through upon Dúbravka’s rejection.

Tottenham Will Sign Cristian Romero

Tottenham coach Antonio Conte will buy their loanee Cristian Romera from Atalanta at the end of the season. Romero has been on loan with Tottenham for the majority of the season, and through this time, he has convinced Conte that he is perfect for the Premier League. The contract is foreseen to be a five-year deal for the summer transfer window.

Conte explains his plans to keep Romero permanently with Tottenham, stating that the Argentine centre-back will be a great addition to their Premier League season despite his three-month absence due to his hamstring injury. His absence cost the team’s defence dearly, but his return marked Tottenham’s FA Cup win against Brighton.

His eight-season stay in Manchester United gave him two goals in 75 appearances.
