Forest moved for Henderson amid doubts over the future of promotion-winning goalkeeper Brice Samba who is keen to return to France and wanted by Lens.
With his experience for club and country, landing England keeper Henderson would be a major coup for Forest ahead of their return to the Premier League.
Among his seasons of consistent football so far was a successful loan at Sheffield United when Henderson was central to their impressive 2019/20 campaign, their first back in the top flight after a lengthy absence and which ended with a ninth-placed finish.
He then returned to Old Trafford the following season and played a big part in Manchester United finishing second but is now on the verge of moving to the City Ground in order to secure more regular football.
