'Will join Forest': Fabrizio Romano makes definitive claim about 'incredible' Reds target
Fabrizio Romano has made a definitive claim regarding Nottingham Forest’s pursuit of Dean Henderson.
The transfer guru says the Manchester United goalkeeper “will join Forest” and it’s just a “matter of time”.
The City Ground club appears to be closing in on two signings.
Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi has reportedly flown to England ahead of a medical with Forest.
Meanwhile, the Reds and United have apparently agreed a deal for Henderson to make the switch to NG2.
The Athletic claims Forest will pay the goalkeeper’s full salary – a reported £110,000-a-week – during his stint.
On Thursday afternoon, Romano provided an update on three deals involving goalkeepers.
As well as the Henderson claim, Romano said Newcastle and West Ham are closing in on Nick Pope and Alphonse Areola respectively.
On Wednesday, The Express reported that the Henderson to Forest move would be a straight loan.
The Reds apparently wanted to include an option to make the transfer permanent for around £20million next summer.
However, United reportedly had no intention to accept these terms as Henderson has admirers at Old Trafford.
Therefore, Forest accepted a straight loan so as to push the move through, added the report.
Forest about to land “phenomenal” talent?
With Brice Samba reportedly leaving Forest to return to Ligue 1, Steve Cooper has had to bring in a replacement.
And in Henderson, Forest are getting themselves a superb keeper.
While Henderson may have struggled for game time at Manchester United, he shone on loan at Sheffield United.
While at Bramall Lane, Henderson kept 13 sheets as the Blades finished ninth in 2019-20.
His efforts led to former teammate Sander Berge deeming him “awesome” and “insane”.
Former MUFC boss Jose Mourinho is also a big fan of Henderson.
