Wycombe Wanderers have signed Stephen Henderson on an emergency loan from Nottingham Forest, as confirmed by their official club website today.
The League One side are in the midst of a goalkeeping injury crisis with Ryan Allsop and Yves Ma-Kalambay still side-lined.
Henderson, who is 30 years-old, has joined the Chairboys on a seven-day loan after they failed to bring Birmingham City stopper David Stockdale back to Adams Park.
The experienced goalkeeper has played just under 200 games so far in his career and will be Wycombe’s fifth different ‘keeper used this season.
Nottingham Forest have let Henderson join Wycombe on a short loan for him to get some first-team minutes under his belt having fallen down the pecking order at the City Ground.
Henderson has previously played for the likes of Bristol City, Portsmouth, West Ham United, Ipswich Town, AFC Bournemouth and Charlton Athletic. He will go straight into Wycombe’s squad to face Barnsley at home this Saturday.
Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth has told their website today, “David (Stockdale) played a fantastic part in our two victories during his time here and both he and I were keen to keep him, but unfortunately we weren’t able to do so and now we’re grateful to Forest for allowing us to bring in (Henderson) for the next week at least”.
He also added, “It’s a tough game for us against Barnsley on Saturday but Stephen’s got good experience across the EFL and I’m sure he’ll come here sharp and prepared for the challenge of helping us keep this excellent run of form going.
