Nottingham Forest are looking for a goalkeeper after Dean Henderson has been out for at least a month with a hamstring injury.
Henderson, on loan from Manchester United, was a key figure in Steve Cooper’s side, which sit 13th in the Premier League – five points above the relegation zone.
However, the 25-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in his side’s 2-0 win against Leicester City.

Wayne Hennessey is expected to stand in for Forest in their six-pointer with Bournemouth
Wayne Hennessey, who has played just once in the Premier League all season, will stand in for Henderson in his six-point away game at Bournemouth on Saturday.
However, Cooper’s side are determined to bring in another goalkeeper to bolster them in the relegation battle while Henderson is out injured.
Henderson was able to finish the game against Leicester but had significant discomfort after injuring himself on a goal kick early in injury time.
Following the game, Cooper didn’t hide his concerns after the final whistle.

He said: “My first impression is that it’s not good. But scans will tell us more and provide more clarity over the next day or two. We’ll have to see how that goes.
“It’s a muscle injury. We believe in his thigh. But we will learn more in the coming days.’
Meanwhile, Forest completed the signing of £18m midfielder Danilo from Palmeiras on Monday.
The 21-year-old has signed a six-and-a-half-year contract and will become Forest’s 24th signing since the club won promotion to the Premier League last year.
