Nottingham Forest have secured the signing of AS Monaco midfielder Pele on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Judilson Mamadu Tuncara Gomes, known as Pele, becomes The Reds’ first signing in what is expected to be a very busy day at The City Ground.

The 27-year-old joined AS Monaco for 10 million euros in the summer from Portuguese side Rio Ave after helping them finish fifth last season, securing Europa League qualification for them.
