Nottingham Forest ready to offer £30m to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson

Nottingham Forest are willing to pay £30 million to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, reports Manchester Evening News.

The 26-year-old joined the City Ground club on a season-long loan last summer following their promotion.

Henderson made 18 Premier League appearances for Forest before a thigh strain ruled him out of the season in January.

While the club brought in Keylor Navas on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, the 36-year-old is expected to return to France.

Forest told Henderson after they secured safety with a 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Saturday that they want him.

The Man United goalie is contracted to the Red Devils until 2025.

They also have the option of activating an additional year in his deal, but selling him for £30m could appeal to the board.

Manager Erik ten Hag needs funds to buy players in the summer, and with the takeover being delayed, cash from selling Henderson would come in handy.

Forest broke their transfer record last August after signing Morgan Gibbs-White for £25m.

They are ready to break it again a year later with the acquisition of Henderson.

The Man United academy graduate wants to keep playing regularly to boost his chances with the England national team.

He knows David de Gea will remain ahead of him in the pecking order, and a permanent exit will do him good.

Henderson underwent surgery two weeks ago and could be sidelined until early August.

He will not get a chance to feature for Man United in pre-season, but it will not affect his chances of joining Forest permanently if an agreement can be reached.
