Henderson to turn down United move

Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson has scuppered Manchester United's attempts to sign him by insisting he has no intention of leaving the club this summer.

Henderson emergence in Steve Bruce's side, which led to his first England cap, coupled with United's desire to replace the evergreen Paul Scholes, had resulted in plenty of interest from the 18-time league champions.

But the 20-year-old says he is happy at the Stadium of Light.

"I'm improving every day, that is what I'm aiming to do. I'm enjoying myself at Sunderland, I'm not looking to leave.


"I'm playing every week in the Premier League and that's all I have ever dreamed of doing.

"I'm young and I'm playing for Sunderland. It's something I love doing. I just want to keep doing that, keep improving, keep getting better as a player."

Henderson's comments come a week after Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick's contracts were renewed, and with the England international's snub further highlighting Sir Alex Ferguson's inability to attract Europe's big names to Old Trafford, the move to secure the future of the midfield duo appears a shrewd one.
