The newly-promoted side have made their second summer signing.

Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson on a loan deal.

The 25-year-old will spend a season-long loan spell at the Forest, who have returned to the Premier League for the first time in over two decades.

The move will be Henderson’s third loan spell away from Old Trafford, with the previous two stints being at Sheffield United.

Speaking to Forest’s official website, Henderson said: “I’m happy to be joining such a fantastic club with an amazing set of fans and a wonderful history.

“I want to thank the manager and owners at Nottingham Forest for the great opportunity to play for this club in their first season back in the Premier League. I’m really excited to work with everyone at the club from the manager, players and goalkeeper coach Danny Alcock.

“Finally, just a massive thank you to the fans for the welcome I have received and I can’t wait to celebrate some brilliant moments together this coming season.”

Prior to Henderson’s arrival, Forest signed Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin. The Nigerian striker can make his Forest debut when they face Newcastle in their Premier League opener on August 6.
