Dean Henderson could now get another chance to impress Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, despite Nottingham Forest wanting the goalkeeper. The Reds have been unable to agree terms with United to sign the stopper permanently just yet.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Henderson could now travel to the United States. United are set to play out there this pre-season and unless Forest meet their demands, the player could find himself in limbo somewhat.
It’s been claimed that Forest have offered another loan deal for Henderson. Their first move was structured akin to the deal that saw Chris Wood arrive at Forest; with the Reds agreeing to a transfer fee after so many games in order to assist with financial fair play.
That’s not pricked United’s interest though. Henderson has gone out on loan for six of the last seven seasons and the Red Devils want to finally sell the 26-year-old this summer.
Forest will hope to find a resolution for Henderson. The article does actually claim that the stopper has been told that he will go to the City Ground once they’ve managed to sign Andre Onana.

Henderson was on loan with Forest last season. He made 20 appearances for the club and kept six clean sheets before picking up a season-ending injury in January.

The Reds will be getting pig sick of this one. On one hand, Forest will feel confident that Henderson wants to come to the club but on the other, they will want to make sure they’re well-stocked.
Forest will want to get their number one sorted quickly. They’re currently on pre-season in Spain with Ethan Horvath as their only senior goalkeeper right now.
Henderson doesn’t appear to have a major future at United. With that in mind, hopefully, Onana can join United quickly freeing up room for the goalkeeper to head to Forest in a permanent deal.
The deal-breaker to all of this is Forest. The ball is firmly in their court really and if they’re serious about re-signing Henderson they will have to dig deep the pay United what they want.
