Nottingham Forest want to sign Dean Henderson on permanent deal

Dean Henderson was once tipped as a potential replacement for David de Gea. After coming through the academy at Manchester United, it’s no secret that his sights have always been on becoming the first choice goalkeeper.

Not everything has gone to plan for Henderson. He was supposed to get a chance in the team at the beginning of last season, though he was ruled out for a sustained period after testing positive for coronavirus.

According to a report by The Telegraph, Nottingham Forest have made Henderson a ‘top target’ in the summer. Steve Cooper is keen to sign the goalkeeper on a permanent basis after signing him on loan last summer.

Henderson, who is currently out with an injury, was dealt some bad news on transfer deadline day when Forest signed PSG shot-stopper Keylor Navas until the end of the season.

That said, it bodes well for Henderson that Forest want to sign him on a long term deal. Maybe he doesn’t need to worry about Navas after all.

Henderson has made 20 appearances in all competitions so far this season and has six clean sheets to his name.
