Nottingham Forest are on course to seal the loan capture of Dean Henderson from Manchester United this week.
The two clubs are finalising details of the agreement, which will be a straight season-long move, with all parties keen to get a deal tied up.
Forest moved for Henderson amid doubts over the future of promotion-winning goalkeeper Brice Samba.
Samba, who is keen to return to France, is wanted by Lens and Nantes.

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.
