Manchester United star Dean Henderson to receive medical check-up in Nottingham Forest this week

Manchester United star Dean Henderson to receive a pre-loan medical from Nottingham Forest this week

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United star Dean Henderson will undergo medical tests this week to complete his loan spell at Nottingham Forest. He will go through the process and finalize the deal once he returns from his honeymoon in the coming days.

Henderson will head to Forest for a season-long loan transfer at the end of this week after completing his medical. He has already accepted the proposal as he is eager to earn minutes regularly as the 2022 World Cup in Qatar gets closer every day.

The move is expected to be announced in the coming days, with the England international having agreed to personal terms regarding the temporary move. He would like to compete again to go into Gareth Southgate’s plans and would like to use this loan to stand up for himself.

A nice move for all parties?

It seems that Erik ten Hag is happy to let the 25-year-old striker leave this summer. After all, Ten Hag would have stopped this deal if Henderson had been in his plans for the upcoming campaign. If that’s the case, holding the keeper by force would have made no sense.

That’s because we need to create a healthy atmosphere in the dressing room to ensure harmony in the team. Unlucky players could disrupt that, considering how Henderson could have become one if we’d let him stay to remain a backup goalkeeper.

Fortunately, that did not happen, because ten Hag seems to have decided to trust David de Gea between the posts. In any case, we would know from next season whether De Gea can adapt to the way the trainer wants his keepers to play, for example if we look at Andre Onana at Ajax.

Henderson, meanwhile, could become a starter at City Ground, given that Brice Samba is open to leaving Steve Cooper’s side this summer. That means the first can earn consistent minutes and gain valuable time, which can be used to convince Southgate in the months to come.

In addition, Henderson could also have an impact on ten Hag, as he would also play in the Premier League. Both Man United goalkeepers would compete on a level playing field to an extent that could give the coach a clear idea of ​​who his future shot stop should be.
