Dean Henderson, who is spending the season on loan at Nottingham Forest, doesn’t want to return to Manchester United, according to 90min.

Back in August, the 25-year-old blasted Manchester United for broken promises and said he barely spoke to Erik ten Hag.

The one-time England international said he wanted to leave before Ten Hag could see him train because he felt the former Ajax manager would have liked what he saw and blocked Henderson from leaving the club.

Henderson claimed that he was promised to be United’s number one under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the start of the 2021-22 campaign after pulling out of England’s European Championships squad with a hip injury.

But after suffering with a long bout of Covid, David de Gea returned to form in Henderson’s absence and the United academy graduate then failed to dislodge the Spaniard.

Despite being a regular at the City Ground, Henderson wasn’t included in England’s 26-man World Cup squad with Gareth Southgate going with Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope and Aaron Ramsdale.

De Gea’s contract at Old Trafford expires in June although the club do have the option of extending the 32-year-old’s deal by a further 12 months.

Martin Dubravka, who joined the Reds on loan from Newcastle United following Henderson’s departure, is expected to return to St James’ Park following the end of his season-long loan.

According to ESPN, the twenty-time league champions are ‘working on a deal’ to sign Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer as a free agent with his contract at Gladbach set to expire in June.

But with Ten Hag seemingly set to carry out a goalkeeping overhaul in the coming months, Henderson reportedly wants to form no part of the Dutchman’s plans.

90min report that Henderson doesn’t want to return to Carrington despite Forest not having the option of signing him on a permanent deal.

However, the same report states that United are hoping that Henderson’s form under Steve Cooper ‘will help generate interest from potential buyers’.

Following his explosive interview with TalkSPORT in the summer, Henderson clearly wasn’t bothered about burning bridges and it seems he’s made his mind up on his Manchester United future.
