Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson's uncle wins £12,500 off a £25 bet on him playing for England, placed when he was just 14 years old

Dean Henderson’s uncle has won a £12,500 bet with the bookies after backing the Manchester United goalkeeper to play for England when he was just a teenager.

Martin Plunkett decided to make the wager when Henderson was a 14-year-old at Carlisle United as he placed a £25 stake with odds of 500/1, and is now set to receive the payout after he came on against the Republic of Ireland this month.

The 23-year-old was a second-half substitute for Nick Pope and helped keep the clean sheet as Gareth Southgate’s men won 3-0. Henderson’s mother and grandmother also won £2,500 after betting £50 each – but by that point he had already moved to United, slashing the odds.
