Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson could be forced to stay at Old Trafford – despite mass speculation about his future.
Henderson has been linked with a move away from United this summer, with Nottingham Forest in talks about a loan move with an option to buy, according to… Manchester Evening News.
He enjoyed a successful loan spell at the City Ground during the first half of last season, but saw his season cut short early due to injury.
Nor has he played any part in United’s pre-season games as he completes his rehabilitation – but another player’s injury could see him stay at the club rather than move on.

according to Sky SportsTom Heaton suffered a calf injury that would rule him out for the first weeks of the campaign.
Erik ten Hag has few options in the goalkeeping department as backup to Andre Onana, with Zion Suzuki Decline offer to join the club earlier this month.
The Manchester Evening News said fellow back-up Mate Kovar is set to join Bayer Leverkusen, while Nathan Bishop has joined Sunderland.
Therefore, Henderson may be asked to be United’s back-up goalkeeper while Heaton recovers.
Former United academy graduate Heaton, 37, has seen a potential move to Luton face opposition from the Old Trafford management – and his injury could spell bad news for Henderson too.
