Report: Nottingham Forest want to sign Dean Henderson ahead of Tottenham

Nottingham Forest still want to sign Dean Henderson from Manchester United if they remain in the Premier League. Tottenham have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old who has apparently admitted that his days at Old Trafford are numbered.

According to Football Insider, the Reds will make a move for Henderson once they have confirmed their status as a Premier League club for 2023/24. Chelsea are now also interested.

Henderson signed with the Reds over the summer when Steve Cooper reshuffled his team. Forest had to think fast, with Brice Samba expressing his desire to return to France and subsequently sign for Lens.

The talented goalkeeper has a cap named after him for the England national team and is a brilliant stopper. Henderson has made 20 appearances for the Reds, keeping six clean sheets for the club.

Disaster struck Henderson during a match against Leicester on January 14. He tore his thigh muscle on a routine goal kick and hasn’t played for the Reds since, with Keylor Navas as a substitute.

However, it seems that Forest still thinks a lot about Henderson. Now, they are planning to make a permanent effort to sign him, as long as they retain their status as a Premier League club.

The goalkeeper would be an incredible signing from Bosque’s perspective. When he was at Sheffield United, Sander Berge called him ‘crazy’ for his heroics at Bramall Lane.

Forest wants to sign Henderson

The United goalkeeper was openly critical of how the Red Devils treated him last season. It was a frustrating campaign for the player who was ostensibly promised soccer, but played second fiddle throughout the season.

Henderson has had fun at Forest. He will not enjoy the club’s current form while he is injured and will be determined to get fit before the end of the season.

The man with an England cap to his name has really taken his life in Forest. Tottenham and Chelsea will offer attractive proposals, but regular action at the City Ground could prove essential.
