Forest moved to Henderson amid doubts about the future of promotion winning goalkeeper Brice Samba, who is eager to return to France and wanted by Lens.
With his experience for club and country, the landing of England keeper Henderson would spell a major coup for Forest ahead of their return to the Premier League.
One of his seasons of consistent football to date was a successful loan from Sheffield United when Henderson took center stage in their impressive 2019/20 campaign, their first back on the top flight after a long absence and finishing in ninth place.
He then returned to Old Trafford the following season and played a big part in Manchester United, who finished second, but is now on the cusp of moving to City Ground to secure more regular football.
