Former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson was forced to leave the field due to injury in his Crystal Palace debut.
The goalkeeper was on loan at the City Ground last season and made 18 appearances in the Premier League before injury ended the season prematurely. He was replaced by compatriot Keylor Navas, but that did not stop Forest from wanting to re-sign Henderson last summer.
It is said that Forest prefer a loan with obligation to buy rather than a permanent transfer, perhaps due to Henderson’s recent injury. Both United and Forest remained firm in their positions, so a move never materialized. FIND OUT MORE:

Instead, Henderson joined Palace in the summer and made his Carabao Cup debut on Tuesday night, at former club Manchester United. He was forced to leave the field due to a groin injury less than 20 minutes into the match.
Forest supporters react to Henderson’s injury on social media. One of them said:
“It’s been terribly unlucky for Dean Henderson, but it 100% justifies #NFFC’s decision not to buy him. All those Man U fans complaining about not getting a deal done can shut up now.”
“There are rumors that Forest will not buy Hendo because he cannot play football due to injury. This is why the loan deal was proposed and also why we wanted a certain number of matches in the terms of sale. The right decision, enough face for tomorrow for everyone who makes this call. »
