Nottingham Forest could now secure the signing of Dean Henderson for just £15million plus add-ons this summer.
That is according to a report from the Daily Mail, who claim that Manchester United could sell a number of players this summer.
One of them is Henderson, who spent last season on loan at Forest and impressed between the sticks.
It’s claimed that Henderson has now been lined up to join Forest in a deal worth £15million plus add-ons.
That’s a little cheaper than first expected but Forest are still left waiting to complete a deal to sign Henderson.
The report claims that the permanent move hinges on David De Gea singing a new deal with United.

De Gea’s contract expires in just a few days and United are in a race against time to get a new contract sorted.
If the Spaniard leaves then Henderson could be kept at Old Trafford, even with a new goalkeeper like Andre Onana wanted.
United may think that Henderson could stay put but the goalkeeper himself may have other ideas…
Dean Henderson is expecting Nottingham Forest move
The Manchester Evening News report that Henderson is absolutely convinced that he will be joining Forest permanently.
Henderson is thought to be ‘perplexed’ by any suggestions that he could end up staying with United.
The 26-year-old seemingly has absolutely no plans to return to Old Trafford and risk being sat on the bench again.
Henderson would be first-choice stopper for Forest and play regularly ahead of Euro 2024 as he attempts to break into the England squad.
That report claims that Henderson’s move could be worth £30million though, double the claims from the Mail.
There appears to be confusion over just how much Forest would be paying but a permanent move to the City Ground will surely take place soon enough.
