Nottingham Forest have announced the signing of 25-year-old goalkeeper Carlos Miguel from Corinthians.

He has joined on a four-year deal, pending a work permit, extending his stay until the summer of 2028.

Carlos Miguel, highly regarded in Brazil, joins Forest after a solid performance at Corinthians. He kept 14 clean sheets in 25 appearances, earning a reputation as one of Brazil's top goalkeepers.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Miguel started his career at Flamengo and had spells at Internacional, Santa Cruz, and Boa Esporte before moving to Corinthians in 2021.

Upon signing, Miguel expressed his excitement: "I'm really happy and honoured to represent this club. Just seeing the stadium and feeling the energy within it, I can't wait to be on the pitch to help Nottingham Forest win."

Chief Football Officer Ross Wilson shared his enthusiasm: “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.”

Miguel's decision was influenced by his former teammate Murillo, who also moved from Corinthians to Forest.

"I asked him about the club and the city. He said great things and was exuberant about this club, which made me really happy," Miguel noted.

Miguel is also familiar with Danilo from Sao Paulo rival Palmeiras. "Danilo only had good things to say to me. Dani is a great lad, we're going to get on really well together," he said.

Regarding his move to the Premier League, Miguel shared, "The Premier League is one of the most important leagues in the world. Everyone worldwide watches the Premier League and it's no different in Brazil. I'm so happy to be a part of it today."

Looking forward, Miguel aims to cement his place in Nottingham Forest's history. "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."
