Towering goalkeeper Carlos Miguel believes he has joined a “giant” in Nottingham Forest.

The 6ft 8in Brazilian has become the Reds’ fourth signing of the summer transfer window by putting pen to paper on a four-year deal, pending a work permit. He follows Marko Stamenic, Eric da Silva Moreira and Elliot Anderson in moving to the City Ground, with Stamenic set to spend the season on loan at Olympiacos.

Forest triggered a €4m (£3.4m) release clause in Miguel’s contract to secure the 25-year-old’s signature from Corinthians. He flew in from his homeland last weekend to undergo a medical and now links up with Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad as preparations for the 2024/25 Premier League campaign step up.

Speaking about his transfer for the first time to the club, Miguel has ambitiously set his sights on becoming the club's No 1 ahead of Matz Sels and helping Forest achieve success that will be celebrated. "I'm really happy and honoured to represent this club,” he said. “Just seeing the stadium and feeling the energy within it, I can't wait to be on the pitch to help Nottingham Forest win.

"My main objective is to become an important member of this team, a giant club in the history of football. I want a place in the museum like the others!"

Chief football officer Ross Wilson said of the club's latest addition: "Carlos has arrived in Nottingham full of excitement following his performances in Brazil with Corinthians. He concluded all of the formalities yesterday and we are pleased that he will join the squad so early on in pre-season."
