Man Utd complete Altay Bayindir signing after Dean Henderson’s departure to Crystal Palace

Manchester United have completed the signing of Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir following Dean Henderson’s move to Crystal Palace.

Henderson signed a five-year deal at Crystal Palace after joining the Selhurst Park club for a fee of £15million plus £5m in add-ons on Thursday.

Bayindir, meanwhile, has at United arrived in a €5m deal.

“It is a huge honour to join Manchester United and become the first Turkish player to represent this incredible club,” the 25-year-old said on his move to Old Trafford.

“I have a passion for success, and I will give everything to help this special group of players to achieve our ambitions.

“I cannot wait to start working with such an experienced goalkeeping unit. We will support each other and drive high standards every day so that each of us is ready to perform whenever called upon.”

Henderson, who retains international ambitions with England, impressed during his loan spell with Forest last season, when he made 18 Premier League starts.

David De Gea, United’s No 1 for the last 12 years, left the club in June after his contract expired. Ten Hag’s side replaced the Spaniard with Cameroon international goalkeeper Andre Onana.

United, seeking support for Onana, recently conducted medical tests on Bayindir to check a recent back problem, but pressed ahead with a move for the Turkey international after being satisfied with the results.

Bayindir played 40 games for Fenerbahce last season and has won five caps for his country.
