Nottingham Forest have announced the signing of Felipe from Atlético Madrid.

The defender has put pen to paper on a deal which keeps him at the Club until the summer of 2024.

Felipe said, “It was a dream of mine to play in the Premier League and I’m really excited to be part of this wonderful, fast-growing club.”

“You can see it’s a club looking to really grow. It’s a big challenge for me and I made a clear decision to be part of the history here and grow with the club.”

Felipe, 33, joins The Reds having made over 350 appearances in his career, winning league titles in Portugal and Spain and making 46 appearances in the UEFA Champions League.

Born in São Paulo, Felipe played for União Mogi and Bragantino as a youngster before joining Corinthians in 2012.

Making 70 appearances for the Brazilian outfit, the defender then moved abroad for the first time in June 2016, joining FC Porto.

Felipe won the Primeira Liga title with Porto in 2018, the same year in which he made his international debut for Brazil in a 5-0 friendly win over El Salvador.

In 2019, the centre-half joined Atléti, going on to spend four years in Madrid and winning a LaLiga title with Diego Simeone’s side in 2020/21.

The experienced defender now arrives in England for the first time in his career, becoming our latest signing of the January transfer window.
