Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes Dean Henderson should be allowed to leave Old Trafford to join Newcastle this summer.
The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move away from United this summer after failing to take the number one shirt off David de Gea.
There’s no such thing as a pitch invasion in the people’s game that doesn’t like the people
Henderson made just three appearances for the club this season, none of them coming in the Premier League and with a World Cup coming at the end of the year, he is in need of first team minutes.
Newcastle are thought to be interested and it was reported earlier this week that a deal could be close.
As per Manchester Evening News, when asked if he should be allowed to leave, Parker said: “I personally do. Give him the opportunity and go and prove it.
“You can prove it at Newcastle with the pressure on him from their fans. If he’s got an opportunity to play regular football, he’s gonna want it.
“He’s not gonna be sitting down, his ego is not allowing him. Dean Henderson going there will put himself at the forefront and people will really see how good he is.”
