Dean Henderson, a loanee from Manchester United, will be sidelined for four to six weeks due to a muscle issue.
Henderson, who in the summer signed a season-long contract with Nottingham Forest, suffered the injury during the weekend’s 2-0 victory over Leicester. The goalkeeper managed to play on until the final horn, although at full-time, he appeared uneasy.
According to The Manchester Evening News, Henderson has been evaluated this week, and scans have shown that the goalie has a grade two injury in his thigh, necessitating a period of rest.
Henderson is anticipated to be sidelined for four to six weeks, and he might start playing again at the end of February or the beginning of March. This season, he established himself as a first-team fixture at the City Ground. Thus, Nottingham Forest will be devastated by his injury.
Erik ten Hag, whom the goalkeeper claimed he refused to practice under out of fear of being denied a move away, won’t decide on Henderson’s future career until the end of the current campaign, and it is known the academy graduate has not talked to the Dutchman.
Henderson demands regular starts at this point in his career, and United is now negotiating with David De Gea about a new contract. This season, he has made 20 performances for Nottingham Forest and has managed to keep six clean sheets.
