Nottingham Forest loanee Dean Henderson will not be allowed to play against his parent club Manchester United in the League Cup semi-final.
Forest advanced through to the final four of the competition after beating Wolves 4-3 in a penalty shootout on Wednesday. The game initially ended 1-1 at the City Ground, with former Wolves man Willy Boly scoring the opening goal before Raul Jimenez levelled matters in the second-half.
Henderson was once again praised for his heroics after denying Wolves captain Ruben Neves and Joe Hodge in the penalty shootout, as he guided the Reds into the semi-finals of the League Cup for the first time since 1992. However, many supporters have wondered whether he would be allowed to feature against Erik ten Hag's side, after arriving at Forest on a season-long loan from Old Trafford.

According to our sister title Manchester Evening News, United will not allow the 25-year-old to play against them for Forest. It is also claimed that United will 'reject any request' the Reds make.
Head coach Steve Cooper admitted to feeling 'frustrated' over the possibility of not having Henderson between the sticks. "I have only just thought of that. It is frustrating – after seeing the night he has had," he said after the game. "He was excellent in the penalty shootout, but he was more than good in the game.
"He’s part of our group. He is so invested in the group and how we work, what we’re trying to accelerate, in terms of what we want to become – because it is acceleration, with a new group having been put together. And to do that, you need a really good goalkeeper. Not only is he committing as a goalkeeper, he is really buying into being in the city and the greater good of the club. It has put a dampener on it for me tonight."
