NOTTINGHAM FOREST boss Steve Cooper expects to tie the knot with Dean Henderson next week – once the Manchester United goalkeeper returns from his honeymoon.
Henderson married his girlfriend in Rome last weekend and is currently enjoying the second week of his honeymoon.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper is expected to return to England this weekend and then undergo a Forest Medical while on a year-long loan deal with the Premier League newcomers.
Henderson was due to pen the deal early next week before heading to Alicante with his new Forest team-mates for their training camp in Spain.
And the new boy could make his Forest debut against Coventry City at the Pinatar Arena on Friday 8 July.
Henderson is hoping he could topple Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad in Premier League regular time and earn him a recall for England.
Henderson had ambitions to bring United No. 1 to dethrone David de Gea after a two-year loan spell at Sheffield United.
But the stopper failed to establish himself as a main man between the posts at Old Trafford – despite making 26 appearances in all competitions in the 2020/21 season.
Last season was a torrid season for the all-on-field ex-Blades keeper THREE times.
Ex-United keeper Mark Bosnich is a huge Henderson fan and believes now is the right time for him to move on.

During an appearance on talkSPORT, the Australian said: “I think he should go.
He is at the stage of his career where he needs to play football regularly.
“He will know that too. I understand that early in the pre-season he’s trying to see how things develop.
“De Gea was excellent and there’s no doubt about that, but I think from Dean Henderson’s point of view he needs to start caring about Dean Henderson.
“He should go and should go as soon as possible.
