Nottingham Forest want to complete the permanent signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils will listen to offers for their custodian this summer.

United have a desire to strengthen their goalkeeping department and Henderson is keen to play regular first-team football.

Henderson is expected to cost around £30 million and Forest want to position themselves at the front of the queue.

The Reds had the 26-year-old on loan for the 2022/23 campaign but his season was curtailed in January.

He tore his thigh taking a goal kick during a 2-0 win over Leicester City and he’s not played for the Reds since.

Henderson has been an avid spectator, however, choosing to do his rehabilitation programme at the City Ground.

Now, he could be set to move to the Reds on a permanent basis, although there will be stiff competition.

It was claimed earlier this season that Tottenham were keen to try and sign Henderson at the end of the season too.

The player would surely jump at the chance to sign for the club permanently, however.

He’s really invested himself into the traditions at the football club and was spotted among the celebrations on Saturday.

Forest want Henderson on permanent deal

It goes without saying that Forest will definitely want to sign a goalkeeper this summer.

Keylor Navas will return to PSG at the end of his loan, whilst Wayne Hennessey could also move on.

Henderson kept six clean sheets in 20 appearances during his time at Forest and saved penalties from Declan Rice, Harry Kane and Ruben Neves.

During his time at Sheffield United, Henderson was called ‘insane’ by Sander Berge and Forest must do whatever it takes to sign him.

Given his age, the stopper could become the club’s goalkeeper for the next 10 years and £30 million isn’t bad value for money.
