Full-back Renan Lodi of Atletico Madrid has been hired by Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan.
Brazilian player, age 24, is the newly promoted team’s 18th acquisition of the summer.
Lodi joined Atletico in 2019 and has since played 118 games, winning La Liga in 2021 and participating 27 times in the Champions League for Diego Simeone’s team.
He has won 15 caps for Brazil since making his debut in 2019.
Forest are 14th in the Premier League after Sunday’s 2-0 defeat by Tottenham.
Speaking before the game, Forest manager Steve Cooper said: “We want to get to a point when the window closes that we have good cover for every position but also a challenge for every position as well.
“We want to give ourselves the best opportunity to be able to compete. That is all we are trying to do.
“I would rather get questions about how many players we have signed than not signing enough, because it shows we have the right ambition.
“We are still going through the process, when the window shuts hopefully we have enough players in our squad to cover each position, so we have a competitive environment on the training pitch.”
