Dean Henderson has been included in Manchester United's squad for their pre-season tour of the USA.

That is despite the Cumbrian goalkeeper appearing to be close to a permanent exit from the Old Trafford club.

Henderson is one of four keepers in the Man Utd travelling party for games against Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

His inclusion comes at a time Man Utd are close to confirming the the signing of Inter Milan No1 Andre Onana.

That is expected to be the vital piece in the jigsaw which will then enable Henderson to make a multi-million pound move to Nottingham Forest.

The two clubs are said to have been in talks over a permanent move, with Whitehaven star Henderson keen for more first-team football at the club where he spent last season on loan.

Until Onana's move is rubber-stamped - The Athletic today reported he could be with the Man Utd squad in the USA as soon as today - boss Erik Ten Hag has gone with Henderson plus Nathan Bishop, Tom Heaton and Radek Vitek in his goalkeeping ranks for the American trip.

Henderson is one of two Cumbrian goalkeepers closing in on summer moves, with James Trafford's switch from Manchester City to Burnley reportedly close to completion.

Carlisle United stand to benefit financially from both deals involving their former academy players.

Man Utd take on Arsenal on Saturday in New York before a young Red Devils side will take on Wrexham in San Diego next Tuesday, ahead of a first-team encounter with Real Madrid the following day in Houston and then a final game against Borussia Dortmund in Las Vegas on Sunday week.
