Nottingham Forest still want to sign Dean Henderson from Manchester United if they remain in the Premier League. Tottenham have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old who has seemingly conceded that his days at Old Trafford are numbered.
According to Football Insider, the Reds will make a move for Henderson once they have confirmed their status as a Premier League club for 2023/24. Chelsea are now also keen.
Henderson signed for the Reds during the summer as Steve Cooper reshuffled his squad. Forest had to think quickly, with Brice Samba expressing a desire to return to France and subsequently signing for Lens.
The talented goalkeeper has one cap to his name for the England national team and he’s a brilliant stopper. Henderson has made 20 appearances for the Reds, keeping six clean sheets for the club.
Disaster struck for Henderson during a game against Leicester on January 14th. He tore his thigh muscle taking a routine goal-kick and hasn’t played for the Reds since, with Keylor Navas deputising.
It would appear that Forest still thinks a lot of Henderson, however. Now, they’re plotting to make a permanent push to sign him provided they retain their status as a Premier League club.
The goalkeeper would be an incredible signing from a Forest perspective. When he was at Sheffield United, Sander Berge called him ‘insane’ for his heroics at Bramall Lane.
Forest want to sign Henderson
The United goalkeeper was openly critical of how the Red Devils treated him last season. It was a frustrating campaign for the player who was seemingly promised football but played second fiddle all season.
Henderson has enjoyed himself at Forest. He won’t be enjoying the club’s current form whilst he sits out injured and he will be determined to get himself fit before the end of the season.
The man with one England cap to his name has really taken to life at Forest. Tottenham and Chelsea will provide attractive propositions but regular action at the City Ground could prove pivotal.
