Nottingham Forest move for Burnley keeper Hennessey

Nottingham Forest are ready to sign a second senior goalkeeper.

Having swooped for Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson on a season-long loan on Friday, Forest are now in talks to sign Burnley veteran Wayne Hennessey.

Football Insider says Forest boss Steve Cooper wants the 35 year-old to act as cover for Henderson.

Wales international Hennessey played three times for Burnley last season before his World Cup qualifying heroics this summer.

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany will be reluctant to lose Hennessey after seeing Nick Pope sold to Newcastle United.
