Jose Mourinho's side have brought back the teenager as cover, although it is unlikely he will feature in the starting XI

Manchester United have confirmed they have recalled goalkeeper Dean Henderson from his loan spell with Grimsby after a “significant injury to one of their first-team goalkeepers”.

The good news for Red Devils fans is that the first-team keeper in question is Joel Pereira, meaning David de Gea and Sergio Romero are still fit to feature.

Teenager Henderson is now eligible for Man Utd's clash with champions Leicester City on Sunday, with no further details of Pereira's injury having been given.

Henderson joined Grimsby in August but had his loan extended in January and has kept three clean sheets in his last four games for the League Two side.

“Grimsby Town Football Club can confirm that Manchester United have re-called on loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson with immediate effect,” read a statement.

“Dean has been recalled by his parent club due to a significant injury to one of their first-team goalkeepers. In his short stay with the Mariners, Henderson made seven appearances keeping four clean sheets in the process.”

Pereira was brought back by Jose Mourinho as extra cover after the club allowed Sam Johnstone to move to Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old featured in the Under-23s 3-1 defeat to Everton on Monday and went down injured, although opted to carry on and even saved a penalty.
