Nottingham Forest landed several players during the summer months and many of the new recruits have already had an impact this season.
The Reds are currently second in the Championship as domestic football takes a break to make way for the second international break of the campaign.
One man who is taking well to his first foray into English football is Portuguese full-back, Yuri Ribeiro.
The 22-year-old signed on a free transfer from Benfica at the same time as midfielder Alfa Semedo and he is adapting well to the demands of the Championship.
Ribeiro has 13 Portugal under-21 caps to his name and just seven games into his Forest career he already looks a smart signing.
Sabri Lamouchi placed his faith in several transfers from various European countries during the summer and right now it seems to be paying dividends.
Ribeiro, in particular, is proving a popular figure with the club’s supporters and earlier today he took to Twitter to send a message to all Forest fans:

If the all-action performer keeps playing the way he is then he could very quickly become one of the best pieces of free transfer business the club has ever completed.
He has already shown his versatility to Lamouchi; playing on the left-wing in games against Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers.
Following his decision to post a message to all of his supporters in the international break, fans have been offering him their thoughts on his performances so far.
Here is a selection of tweets from Forest supporters in response to Ribeiro:
You are making a great impact. Quickly becoming a fans favourite 👍
