Fabrizio Romano says Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson 'close' to leaving club this summer

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is 'close' to leaving the club to join fellow Premier League side Nottingham Forest, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Henderson has spent the 2022/23 season on loan at the City Ground, where he was a key player for Steve Cooper's side during the first part of the campaign.
After the mid-season break for the World Cup, the 26-year-old made just five more appearances for the Midlands club before suffering a season-ending thigh injury.
Henderson, however, could be set to stay at the City Ground instead of returning to Old Trafford this summer.
Henderson 'close' to move
Football Insider claimed last week that Forest had submitted an offer to United in an attempt to sign Henderson on a permanent deal.
He is said to be on course to return from injury in time for the start of the 2023/24 season, making a deal more appealing to Cooper's side.
And speaking to The United Stand, Romano has claimed that an agreement between the two sides is not far away.
He explained: "This is close [a move to Nottingham Forest]. This is something that has been discussed for two or three weeks between Nottingham Forest, Manchester United and the agents of the player.
"The player wants to go. Manchester United want to accept that proposal, so I think this is just a matter of time to complete the final details and then Dean Henderson has a concrete chance to join Nottingham Forest. I'm told it's not done yet, but it could be done very, very soon.
"I think this is a good opportunity also for United to make some profit. These kinds of deals are going to be crucial this summer. We know about the striker, we know about the midfielder and also what's going to happen with the centre-back.
"But in general, to make some money with all these players that are returning from loans and who are not part of the Manchester United project, is going to be the best way to do something extra especially in the second part of the transfer window."
