Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been linked with a move to Nottingham Forest - that could end up being worth £20million.

The 25-year-old has been the subject of plenty of speculation this summer, having fallen behind David De Gea in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Henderson, who hails from Whitehaven, was linked with Middlesbrough earlier this week, but is said to have his sights set on a move to the Premier League.

And Nottingham Forest are the latest club to be credited with an interest.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that the newly-promoted side have opened talks with the Red Devils over a potential loan move for Henderson.

He adds that the deal will contain an option to make the move permanent for a sum of £20million.

Talks are said to be ongoing with Henderson considering the move.

Were the deal to come to fruition - and the purchase option activated - then a welcome windfall would be heading to Carlisle United.

The Blues, whom Henderson represented as a youngster, hold a sell-on clause after the deal that took him to the Red Devils.

However, United co-owner Steven Pattison said recently that Henderson staying at Old Trafford and establishing himself could actually prove more lucrative for Carlisle.
