Henderson's move from Millwall to Forest to be confirmed

DARIUS Henderson is set to sign for Nottingham Forest on Thursday after being given the green light to leave Millwall on a free transfer.

Henderson is understood to have agreed terms on a contract until the end of the season with the Tricky Trees and confirmation of the move is expected once he has completed a medical.

The Lions have waived a fee for the 31-year-old in order to free up space within their wage budget – clearing the way for Forest to take over his current deal, which was due to expire in the summer.



Director Peter Garston said last night: "Henderson has been given permission to speak with Forest [and] this will happen on Thursday.

"The decision to allow this to happen was purely Kenny Jackett's. He was under no pressure from the board and Kenny is in total charge of team matters.

"Henderson leaving will free up wages. Kenny has targets and will go for them when he is ready and get who he wants at the money he is willing to pay. But he won't rush into it."



Henderson had not scored for Millwall since the start of November – ironically against Forest in a 4-1 win at the City Ground – and has been in and out of the side in recent months because of injury.

But his departure still comes as a surprise given the Lions are yet to adequately replace Chris Wood and loan signing Nathan Tyson damaged an ankle ligament on his debut last weekend.

    You watch Henders become super fit now he wants to play again. Lets hope they give him the job to take their penalties.

    This is a sensible move by Jackett. It frees up a lot of wage money to get someone else in, preferably younger, preferably permanent and someone who is not injured all the time. We will be fine. COYL.

    I am a big Jackett fan, but think this is a big big mistake. It frees up wages to buy what, a striker capable of getting 20 a year like Henderson. I dont think so.

    bead30 is correct. Henderson is too prone to injury, too slow and his performances are inconsistent. He is also likely to go to prison in March. On top of that, we would have lost him anyway in the summer to a club who would pay him more. I have trust in KJ that he will use the cash saved to identify and bring in a more reliable player.

    Good riddens to the big man. He hardly wins the ball in the air. Cant finish a full season, and only scores in bulk over 2-3 games and wont see another over a space of ten games. Jackett is playing the right cards and to get rid of someone with highest earnings, surely he must bringing someone in who's not far off his wages. Hopefully bring back kane to the club. Up the lions

    It's a big risk letting a proven scorer go, so I can only assume that KJ has someone lined up and very close to signing. IF it was a big name stirke (Campbell) I feel that we might have heard about it in the mainstream press but maybe we are looking aborad. There were early indications that KJ had spread his net at the beginning of January... I would only consider selling Hendo a mistake if we do not get someone in to replace him. week and half to go KJ, get busy my friend!

    I wonder how many of his injuries were actual injuries and how many were other 'issues' he might have had.....he would often get pulled out of the squad at late notice with minor injuries that miraculously heal within a week. Case in point, foot injury on Saturday, sold to Forest today.

    wouldn't mind Campbell not sure about church, cant see us having to get Hendo off the wage bill to pay churches wages, hes only on the big money because of his promotions clause at reading hope that's not the case, whats happening with billy Sharpe when dose his loan at forest finish, i see tom pope saying he wants to stay at port vale, are we in for Morison? bit confused by all this still keeping the faith.

    At this point in time this looks an odd decision by KJ and only time will tell. If Henderson isn't happy, then we are wise to get shot of him. He had a good first season with us, but this year he has been average and will acquire a lot of splinters in his a*** warming the bench at Forest. We move on.
