Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has agreed to a lease for Nottingham Forest.

United want a new keeper to compete with Tom Heaton as David de Gea’s understudy and have spoken with Watford about a transfer for Daniel Bachmann as they explore a number of budget options.

However, 27-year-old Bachmann still has a two-year contract and Watford is said to be asking for a fee.

Newly promoted Premier League club Forest will have an option at the end of the loan to buy England international Henderson for £20 million.

One of his seasons of consistent football to date has been a successful loan with Sheffield United, as Henderson took center stage in their impressive 2019-20 season, which finished in ninth place.

He then returned to Old Trafford the following season and played a big part in United finishing second. Now he is likely to replace Brice Samba in Forest, while the Congo star wants a move to France.

Bachmann, meanwhile, has been at Vicarage Road since 2017, playing 23 Championship games as the Hornets won promotion to the Premier League in 2020-21.

The Austria international then started last season’s first four games for the Hornets, but was eventually relegated to No. 2 after losing his place to Ben Foster.

Foster has now left Watford but the club have signed a replacement in the form of Sparta Rotterdam’s Maduka Okoye for nearly £5million.

Bachmann came to England in 2011 when he was signed by Stoke City of Austria Vienna at the age of 17.

However, he never appeared in the first team for the Potters but instead went on several loans in the UK, namely to Wrexham, Ross County and Bury before being taken over by Watford five years ago.

Bachmann made 41 appearances for the Hornets but spent the 2018-19 season on loan against Kilmarnock this time.
