A Sky Sports journalist has shared some ‘confirmed’ Nottingham Forest transfer news regarding Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson live on TV.
The Lowdown: Henderson profiled
The shot-stopper is an academy graduate of the Red Devils having joined the Premier League giants at the age of just 14, where after multiple loan spells with the likes of Shrewsbury and Sheffield United, he eventually made his first-team debut in a Carabao Cup fixture against Luton Town back in 2020.
And even though the 25-year-old has plenty of valuable experience under his belt, his lack of game time at Old Trafford this season, having made zero top-flight appearances, has resulted in him being linked with a move away from ten Hag’s side.
Following a fresh update, it appears as though Steve Cooper is eyeing up a move for the man between the sticks.
The Latest: Sky Sports News update
Sharing a live TV update on Forest’s interest in Henderson, Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth revealed that ‘a couple of sources have confirmed to me’ that the club are now ‘pushing’ to sign the Whitehaven-born talent.
The journalist insisted that a potential move would ‘make a lot of sense for all parties’ after suggesting that Brice Samba ‘doesn’t look like he wants to sign a new contract’.
The Verdict: Samba replacement
With it sounding highly unlikely that Samba will be playing at the City Ground next season, Henderson would be the perfect replacement to take over his gloves and claim that number one jersey.
Even though the keeper has only recorded 29 senior outings for United over the years, he’s managed to keep 13 clean sheets during that time, as per Transfermarkt, and will need to make the move elsewhere to get regular first-team football if he wants any chance of getting into Gareth Southgate’s England World Cup squad later this year.
This is something that he would definitely receive at Forest if Samba were to depart, and having shone on loan at Bramall Lane – his teammates called him ‘insane’ and ‘exceptional’ – Henderson surely has what it takes to step into the play-off hero’s shoes.
