It’s been a busy old day for Nottingham Forest so far on transfer deadline day – but things are only just starting to really heat up.
This morning was met by the news that the young Brazilian defender Murillo from Corinthians had joined Steve Cooper‘s side. He signed a five-year contract which keeps him at The City Ground until at least the summer of 2028.
This news was followed by another incoming – this time it was Nuno Tavares from Arsenal, who joined on a season-long loan.
Little did we know this was just the beginning of what has been a chaotic day of incoming, outgoings and transfer mania at Forest.

Sky Sports showed images of Nicolas Dominguez heading into the Forest training camp this morning. He is set to join on a long-term contract from Bologna after Remo Freuler agreed to go the other way.
Dominguez reportedly had his medical yesterday and will be announced in due time on deadline day.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was also spotted getting into the same car as Dominguez this morning. The winger has just a year left on his contract at Chelsea and is looking like a bargain for Cooper’s side.
Forest will pay less than £5 million for Chelsea youngster, it has now been claimed. However – the Blues have ensured that a significant sell-on clause has been placed in the deal.
This is set to be the big one of the day, given the ‘Here We Go’ treatment by Fabrizio Romano – Forest are about to pick up an unbelievable talent in Ibrahim Sangare.
The powerhouse of a midfielder will transform the midfield at The City Ground.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has reported that former Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is said to be ‘closing in’ on a move to Forest from Fenerbache.
This would be on a permanent deal, with the Turkish club striker looking to cost around £8m.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Vlachodimos is currently on his way to England to complete a deadline-day move to Nottingham Forest. The Reds reached an agreement with Benfica for a last-gasp deal on Friday morning.
Players who could still leave The City Ground
The big one, it’s Brennan Johnson who will be leaving Nottingham Forest today.
It was initially reported that the forward was close to an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur and a couple hours ago, Fabrizio Romano confirmed this.
The English youngster will be departing for around £45m. A good return for Forest – but we’re sad to see him go.
No one else at this moment in time seems set to go – but best believe if they do, we’ll be letting you know right here on Nottingham Forest News as we cover all the deadline day transfer action.
