The 25-year-old keeper is expected to return to England this weekend and will then undergo a Forest medical as he closes in on a year-long loan deal with the Premier League newcomers.

Henderson should put pen to paper on the deal early next week before heading for Alicante with his new Forest team-mates for their pre-season training camp in Spain.

And the new boy could make his Forest debut against Coventry City in the Pinatar Arena on Friday, July 8.

Henderson is hoping regular Premier League game time could yet see him gatecrash Gareth Southgate's world cup squad and earn him an England recall.

Henderson had ambitions of dethroning United No.1 David de Gea following a two-year loan spell with Sheffield United.

But the stopper was unable to establish himself as the main man between the sticks at Old Trafford - although he did make 26 appearances in all competitions in the 2020/21 season.

Last season provided to be a torrid one for the former Blades keeper, who only took to the field THREE times.

Ex-United keeper Mark Bosnich is a big fan of Henderson and believes now is the right time for him to move on.

During an appearance on told talkSPORT, the Aussie said: “I think he should go.

He’s at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing regular football.

“He’ll know that as well. I understand that at the start of the season, him having a go in pre-season to see how things plan out.

“De Gea has been excellent and there’s no doubt about it, but I think from Dean Henderson’s point of view, he needs to start looking after Dean Henderson.

“He should go and should go as soon as he possibly can.
