The on-loan Manchester United man made the admission after Sunday's game between Leeds and Aston Villa, a 1-1 draw which confirmed United's top-flight status next season.

Henderson has proved a big hit with Blades supporters after joining on loan from United's Manchester namesakes in the summer, and admits he still has ambitions of being the No.1 goalkeeper at Old Trafford and for the England senior side.

But he added: "I want to play Premier League football at Bramall Lane. It's down to the two clubs to sort out, but that's what I'd love.
