Stephen Henderson hasn’t made a single appearance for Nottingham Forest this season and doesn’t even have a shirt number registered. The 30-year-old returned from a loan spell at Portsmouth over the summer and found himself behind the likes of Costel Pantilimon, Jordan Smith and Luke Steele in the pecking order.

Aitor Karanka allowed the goalkeeper to join Wycombe Wanderers on an emergency loan in December, but Henderson could be moved on in the winter transfer window to get more playing time. The uncapped Irishman has made just 16 appearances in all competitions for Forest since joining the Reds from Charlton in 2016.

Henderson has been sent away on two loan deals in his two years at the City Ground and couldn’t be further away from the senior side. Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth was full of praise for the experienced shot-stopper during his short-lived stay at the Adams Park so he should get interest from other League One sides in January.

It’s hard to see Forest standing in his way as his last game for the Midlands outfit was all the way back in September 20, 2017 – a 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in the EFL Cup.
