Nottingham Forest target a permanent summer move for Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson
Henderson, who is currently on loan at Forest for the whole of this season, has been very good for Steve Cooper’s side thus far. He picked up an injury before the January transfer window deadline, which meant they had to sign Keylor Navas for that position on loan from Paris-Saint Germain.
It would be interesting to see if Cooper reverts to Henderson in goal when he returns from injury in a few weeks’ time, or stay with Navas, who had an excellent debut against Leeds United on Sunday.
The other thing is that the multiple Champions League winner is there until the summer only. And Forest want to sign Henderson on a permanent deal once his loan spell ends.
The 25-year-old’s contract at Old Trafford runs up until the summer of 2025 (Transfermarkt). His comments about United after leaving for Forest meant that coming back to Old Trafford may not be an option for him.
Moreover, David de Gea has been in great form for us and is confident about signing a contract with the club. So, even if Henderson comes back from his loan spell, he wouldn’t be the first-choice keeper here.
Now, the latter does not seem like a player, especially at his current age, who would want to warm the bench and wait for his chances.

Hence, it would make sense if United sanction a deal to sell him in the summer. The 25-year-old has found a good club in Forest who are doing well and could well stay up. For us, it would be an opportunity to get a transfer fee in and use that to strengthen the squad in other areas.
