Forest sign Pele

31 January 2019

Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce the signing of Pele from French side AS Monaco.

Judilson Mamadu Tuncará Gomes, known as Pele, has signed a deal on loan with The Reds until the end of the 2018-19 season.

The 27-year-old has featured for a host of teams across Europe, notably Portuguese top-tier side Rio Ave. The midfielder was a key component of the side which finished fifth last season, resulting in qualification for the Europa League, with his seven goals in 31 appearances earning him the Player of the Season award for the Portuguese side.

Pele, who has also been on the books of European giants AC Milan and Benfica, caught the eye of French side Monaco with his displays, resulting in a move to the Ligue 1 side last summer.
