REPORT: Manchester United Set To Sell Goalkeeper To Fellow Premier League Club

Manchester United are reportedly in talks to make Dean Henderson’s loan transfer to Nottingham Forest a permanent one, according to TalkSPORT.

While a move is yet to be completed, it seems inevitable – not only has Erik Ten Hag allegedly given the move the green light, Forest are also believed to be very interested in bringing Henderson to the City Ground for the foreseeable future.

He served as Forest’s first-choice goalkeeper until January, when he was sidelined with a thigh injury. Following this, he was replaced between the sticks by Keylor Navas, who will return to his parent club (PSG) when his loan deal expires.

How can Manchester United replace Dean Henderson?

Manchester United are set for a goalkeeper exodus this summer. Not only is Henderson set to leave the club, Jack Butland is, too – the former Stoke City man will join Rangers when the transfer window opens.

Not only this, but there is also talk of David De Gea departing the club in the upcoming transfer window. His deal is set to expire in June – while United have an option to extend his contract for a further year, they have yet to do so.

As such, United will need to sign at least one goalkeeper for the 2023/24 season. They have been linked with FC Porto shot-stopper Diogo Costa [via The Guardian], but nothing official has been set in motion as of yet.

Dean Henderson career summary

Henderson joined the academy of Carlisle United when he was just eight years old – in 2011, he was headhunted and snapped up by Manchester United at the age of 14.

He enjoyed a series of loan spells at Shrewsbury Town, Grimsby Town and Stockport County before rising to prominence at Sheffield United. He played a major role in their impressive survival campaign, pulling off a number of brilliant saves over the course of the season.
