Final Game – Man Utd star to complete transfer exit immediately after Nottingham Forest clash

Manchester United are preparing for a busy final week of the summer transfer market, beginning with the departure of Dean Henderson, who appears to be on his way to Crystal Palace.

Dean Henderson is set to join Crystal Palace after Manchester United granted him clearance to get a medical following their match against Nottingham Forest.

Henderson, 26, will travel to South London on Saturday night to complete the transfer, which should push the Red Devils to acquire a new backup goalkeeper, Altay Bayindir from Fenebahce. The Turkey international had medical tests with United personnel earlier this week in Greece, amid rumors that Erik ten Hag’s side were also considering a move for Benfica shot-stopper Odysseas Vlachodimos.


Bayindir’s arrival was contingent on Henderson’s future, but according to the Telegraph, the Red Devils academy graduate is on his way to Palace. Personal conditions, as well as other deal formalities, have yet to be agreed upon.


It’s unclear whether Henderson’s departure will be on a temporary or permanent basis. Forest, who took a 2-0 lead after four minutes at Old Trafford on Saturday, were desperate to recruit the 26-year-old after a successful loan spell last season but were unable to reach an agreement with United.


Henderson was named to the Premier League bench for the match, replacing new £47 million signing Andre Onana. Manager Ten Hag pushed Henderson to “fight” for his spot in pre-season, but the goalkeeper has been desperate to go out in order to play regularly in the run-up to the European Championships next summer.


Last summer, following his loan move to Nottingham, he appeared to criticize former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian had Henderson as his No. 1 goalkeeper near the end of the 2020-21 season, only to switch back to David de Gea before the next season began.


In an interview with talkSPORT, he fumed about that awful season, in which he only made three appearances: “To be honest, it has probably been the toughest 12 months of my career.” Coming out of the Euros squad, I was told, ‘You’re coming back here to be the No.1’.

“I got COVID, returned, and should have remained No. 1, but nobody followed through on what they had told me.” It was irritating since I had turned down so many nice loans for that reason previous summer, and they would not let me go. To sit there and waste a year is criminal; at my age, I was seething.”
