Brazil full-back Renan Lodi has joined Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.
The 24-year-old was part of the Spanish side’s success in 2020-21 and made 27 Champions League appearances for the club.
He becomes Forest’s 18th signing this summer following promotion to the Premier League, with his signing confirmed on the official Forest website on Monday.
Lodi earned 15 caps for Brazil after making his senior international debut against Senegal in October 2019.
Forest boss Steve Cooper, speaking ahead of Sunday’s home game against Tottenham, said: “We want to get to a point where the window closes that we have good cover for every position but also a challenge for each position as well.
“We want to give ourselves the best chance of being able to compete. That’s all we try to do.
“I would rather be asked questions about the number of 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 closes hopefully we will have enough players in our squad to cover every position, so we have a competitive environment on the training ground.”
