Nottingham Forest have found a breakthrough in talks to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan. United’s request to remove an option to buy from the deal has been granted, and Henderson should complete his switch in the coming days.
Express Sport understands Forest’s attempts to loan Henderson had stalled as they looked to include an option to make the transfer permanent for around £20million next summer. Steve Cooper is searching for a new No 1, with Brice Samba set to leave after helping the club back into the Premier League.
However, despite spending last season deputising for David de Gea on the bench, Henderson still boasts huge admirers at United. Therefore, the Red Devils had no intention to accept the terms, and Forest have since agreed to a straight season-long loan to push the move through.
Henderson’s move to the City Ground is expected to be confirmed in the coming days and will be United’s seventh first-team departure of the summer. Erik ten Hag will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on the 25-year-old’s progress amid lingering doubts over whether David de Gea will suit his style of play.
