Grant explains why he signed new Manchester United contract to stay as fourth-choice goalkeeper

The experienced shot-stopper says he still has an important role to play at Old Trafford, as back-up to David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Tom Heaton
Lee Grant says the opportunity to push his fellow Manchester United goalkeepers to even greater heights was one of the main reasons he decided to extend his stay at Old Trafford, despite being fourth choice.

The 38-year-old has made just two competitive appearances in two years since joining on a free transfer from Stoke in 2018, but has extended his contract by another season despite being pushed further down the pecking order following the arrival of Tom Heaton.

However, Grant says he feels “valued” at the club and believes he still has a role to play, even if he is behind David de Gea, Dean Henderson and now Heaton in the Red Devils pecking order.
