Man Utd's Dean Henderson 'involved for final ever time' vs Nottingham Forest, his departure is 'confirmed'

Man Utd's Dean Henderson 'involved for final ever time' vs Nottingham Forest, his departure is 'confirmed'

His departure has been confirmed.

Manchester United's Dean Henderson will be involved with the club for the final ever time against Nottingham Forest, it has been claimed.

Erik Ten Hag made three changes to his United side to take on Nottingham Forest, with Christian Eriksen and Diogo Dalot coming in for the injured Mason Mount and Luke Shaw.

Moreover, Anthony Martial came in for Alejandro Garnacho, a switch which saw Marcus Rashford return to his favoured position on the left.

Nevertheless, within four minutes Ten Hag's side were 2-0 down.

From the United corner Forest countered, netting their opener courtesy of Taiwo Awoniyi, who had travelled from inside his own half right to the Man Utd penalty area.

And in the blink of an eye Forest were two goals ahead, after Willy Boly nodded in from a corner. United did pull one back before half-time through Christian Eriksen.

United have endured a tumultuous start to the season and have been tipped to dip into the transfer market before next Friday's deadline.

And it appears they may receive the funds to do so imminently, with academy graduate Henderson set to secure a move to Crystal Palace.

BBC journalist Simon Stone claimed ahead of the Forest game: "I am expecting Dean Henderson to be on the bench for Manchester United this afternoon.

"It is likely to be his last involvement for United before joining Crystal Palace.

"Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir is expected to move to United as Henderson's replacement."

Palace's sporting director Dougie Freedman was reportedly in the stands at Old Trafford as the Eagles look to finalise the move.

It is unclear whether Henderson will leave permanently or on an initial loan.

As a replacement United have allegedly been pursuing Altay Bayindir for a while, and were gaining clarity on a back problem earlier this week before deciding on whether to recruit the 25-year-old.

The five-cap Turkey international was spotted having undergone medical tests in Greece, and as per The Athletic, United have the choice to close out a deal worth around €5million (£4.2million) or focus on another of their available options.
