Nottingham Forest announced the arrivals of Felipe, Jonjo Shelvey and Keylor Navas in the evening, just before the transfer window closed.
A massive boost. Nottingham Forest have made a number of key reinforcements in their quest to stay in the Premier League today. The club is looking to bring in players who are familiar with top-level football, with a focus on experience.
The first arrival is Felipe, who arrives from Atletico Madrid for around £2.2m. The central defender has signed a one-and-a-half year contract until 2024, and brings much needed experience to Forest’s central defence.
The club also announced the expected arrival of Jonjo Shelvey. He arrives from Newcastle with almost 270 Premier League games in his entire career and will certainly be an important addition to solidify Steve Cooper’s midfield, although the competition will be tough.
Finally, the last player to arrive at the City Ground tonight is PSG’s Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas. He arrives at the club on loan, without an option to buy, to make up for Dean Henderson’s injury. This is a very high quality reinforcement for Forest, who are recruiting a three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid. Needless to say, competition with Dean Henderson will be fierce once the English goalkeeper on loan from Manchester United returns from injury.
The new signings join Gustavo Scarpa, Danilo and Chris Wood, who have already joined from Nottingham Forest earlier this winter.
