Dean Henderson has officially joined newly-promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest on loan for the 2022/23 season, a statement from Manchester United and Forest has confirmed.
Henderson has been officially announced as a new Forest player having finally joined the new Premier League side on loan after weeks of negotiations.
The England keeper is looking for first-team football and is keen to impress his new manager with a season spent on loan in the top flight.
United and Forest had been in negotiations for several weeks with the clubs split over whether to negotiate a possible purchase option – which ultimately was not added.
Reports have also surfaced that Forest will pay the full wages of keepers on a weekly basis during his loan spell, which equates to around £110,000 a week.
An official statement from United’s website confirmed Henderson’s loan departure, it read;
“Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has completed a season-long loan at Premier League side Nottingham Forest.
The goalkeeper will spend the 2022/23 season with the two-time European champions, who were promoted to the top flight following their play-off final win over Huddersfield Town in May.
The statement also reiterated the previous success the keeper has had on loan, saying;
“The former youth team player has enjoyed significant success on loan in the past, enjoying a range of valuable experience at Stockport County, Grimsby Town, Shrewsbury Town and Sheffield United.”
