Forest agree loan deal for Man Utd’s Henderson | Awoniyi set to sign

Nottingham Forest have agreed a deal with Manchester United to sign Dean Henderson on loan for the 2022/23 season.

The deal will not include an option for Forest, who were promoted back to the Premier League via the play-offs last season, to buy the England international.

Henderson’s United deal expires in 2025 after he signed a new five-year contract in 2020.

The goalkeeper’s arrival is expected to accelerate Brice Samba’s move to Lens, with the French club in advanced negotiations with Forest for the goalkeeper.

Samba has just a year remaining on his contract and is keen to return to France.

Forest are also set to sign Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin after they met the Union Berlin forward’s £17.5m release clause.

The former Liverpool player – who scored 20 goals for Union last season – has had a medical with Steve Cooper’s side ahead of his anticipated arrival.
