Manchester United have come to a decision on the status of on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson for the club’s upcoming meeting with Nottingham Forest.
For those not aware, Henderson’s name has reemerged as a major talking point at Old Trafford over the course of the last 24 hours.
This comes after the shot-stopper played a central role in Forest booking their spot in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, courtesy of a penalty shootout downing of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Alongside their advancement to the final-4 of the competition, though, has come a major problem for the Forest hierarchy.
This comes in the form of the aforementioned Henderson’s availability.
Forest’s win over Wolves has since seen them drawn against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup semi-finals.
Under normal circumstances, this would see Henderson unable to feature, owing to remaining status on the books of the Red Devils.
It had nevertheless been suggested, though, that the powers that be at the City Ground were readying an appeal to their Man United counterparts, in a bid to grant permission for their no.1 to feature.
And now, as alluded to above, a further update on the situation has been forthcoming online.
The news, however, is far from what all of a Forest persuasion would have been hoping for.
As per the reliable Samuel Luckhurst, United have no intention of affording their on-loan shot-stopper permission to feature in the club’s two-legged semi-final tie with Forest later this month.
