Dean Henderson will have a medical at Nottingham Forest at the end of this week ahead of a season-long loan move from Manchester United.
The England international goalkeeper has agreed terms to move to the City Ground and the deal is expected to be announced in the coming days, once the 25-year-old has returned from honeymoon.
Forest are seeking a new No1 with Brice Samba, last season’s first choice, open to leaving the club, and Henderson is desperate for first-team football to try to force his way back into the England squad.

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.
Henderson would be Forest’s second signing since they sealed promotion back to the Premier League for the first time this century.
Former Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi signed earlier this month from Union Berlin for a club record £17.5million.

Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis is prepared to bankroll significant spending this summer as Forest try to establish themselves in the top flight after a 23-year absence.
Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White and Liverpool defender Neco Williams, who spent last term on loan at Fulham, are among the targets with Forest needing to restructure their team after relying heavily on loan players last term.
Djed Spence, James Garner, Keinan Davis and Philip Zinckernagel were regulars in Steve Cooper’s side.
