Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce the signing of Spanish defender Chema for an undisclosed fee.
The centre back moves to The City Ground from La Liga side Levante, signing a two-year contract.

He got his break in the first-team of Alcoron, having joined them in 2013, before joining Levante and helping them to promotion to La Liga.
The 27-year-old made 21 La Liga appearances last season and now joins Sabri Lamouchi’s side.
