Manchester United is not going to decide on the future of Dean Henderson until the end of the loan season with Nottingham Forest. He has been criticized by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former manager for reneging on his pledge to put him as the top goalkeeper before David de Gea, describing the handling of the Norwegian as a criminal.
Dean Henderson is under contract at Manchester United until 2025. However, the club is ready to deal with De Gea which would indicate that Henderson is going to leave permanently. Before the first match of Forest at Old Trafford, Henderson is not eligible, Ten Hag said for the future of Henderson is that he will not give the decision now. He is on loan for a season. As the season is coming to an end, they will take a decision, and it depends on many factors. He is playing well at Nottingham Forest.
Dean Henderson has embarked on 6 loans since the time he became a part of Manchester United as a schoolboy in 2011. He has just played 29 times for the parent club. 2 out of 3 appearances of Henderson last season came under Ralf Rangnick, the manager, and Henderson is believed to have told Solskjaer personally that he doesn’t like making difficult decisions.
Newcastle has also been keen on signing Henderson in the summer but ultimately chose Nick Pope who came in after a permanent deal. Man United has been uncertain about selling Henderson as his wages are being taken care of by Forest.
