Andrey Santos has joined Nottingham Forest on a season-long loan.
WEBWIRE – Saturday, August 26, 2023
The Brazilian midfielder will continue his progression at the City Ground, as he joins fellow Premier League side Forest for the upcoming campaign.
Santos, who joined Chelsea last winter from Vasco da Gama before returning to the Brazilian side on loan, impressed for the Blues in pre-season this summer but will now spend the season under the guidance of Steve Cooper, a head coach renowned for working with emerging young talent.
The 19-year-old midfielder has been capped at senior international level by Brazil and shone for the U20 side at the South American Championship earlier this year. Captaining his nation to the title, Andrey also ended the tournament as joint-top scorer with an impressive six goals to his name.
He now joins Forest for the season ahead and could make his debut against Manchester United this weekend.
Good luck in Nottingham, Andrey!
