Man Utd goalkeeper Dean Henderson ‘considering’ move to Nottingham Forest

The Red Devils shot-stopper will want to play regularly next season after being second choice at Old Trafford.

Manchester United could be set to lose Dean Henderson to Nottingham Forest this summer, according to reports.

The Englishman was the Red Devils’ second choice goalkeeper last season, making just three appearances in all competitions.

Henderson, who has one cap for England to his name, is said to be ‘considering’ a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Forest have begun talks with United over a potential loan-to-buy deal for the 25-year-old.

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is heavily linked with Newcastle United.

The Italian journalist tweeted: “Nottingham Forest have opened talks with Manchester United to sign Dean Henderson on loan with option to buy [around £20m].

“Negotiations ongoing - Nottingham Forest want Henderson and it’s now a possibility also considered by the player. Talks on.”

The departure of Henderson has been a hot topic since the January transfer window, especially with his lack of game-time.

If the shot-stopper does depart the Red Devils then new United manager Erik ten Hag could be forced to sign a replacement with Tom Heaton the club’s only other senior ‘keeper.

A move away from Old Trafford and regular minutes elsewhere would potentially lead to Henderson earning a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this year’s World Cup.

The 25-year-old joined United from Carlisle United in 2011 and has spent five spells away from the club on loan, including the 2020-21 season with Sheffield United in the Premier League.

However, Forest aren’t the only top flight team interested in the goalkeeper’s signature this summer.

According to the Manchester Evening News last month, Newcastle United are still looking to sign Henderson this summer after failing to secure a move for him in January.
