Leo Bonatini said he is delighted to join Nottingham Forest as he pens a loan deal until the end of the season.

The Brazilian striker joins Martin O'Neill's squad from Wolves and is eager to pull on the red shirt.

He said: "I am feeling very happy to be here, feeling excited and I hope things go well until the end of the season.

"All of the history of the club, the way that the club plays and it is a big club were big things for me. I have played against them last season so I hope everything goes right. I came here to help all of my teammates and I am really excited to start playing.

"It is a very good league. There are big teams and big players playing here so I hope I can help my teammates. They are doing well and I am here to be one more, to help them to improve and I want to start as soon as possible."

Bonatini featured in both games against Forest last season as Wolves won promotion to the Premier League and is looking forward to having the passionate fans on his side.

He said: "I will give my best in every game and every training session. I want to play and I want this feeling again. I know the history and I know the atmosphere here and how hard it is to play against Forest at home, so hopefully the opponents can feel it when we play at home this season.

"The fans are the main part for us. When we go onto the pitch, to feel them with us is nice. I didn't feel them on my side last season, I know what it is like to play against them and I remember it was a hard game here last season. I hope the players can feel the atmosphere and it will be nice to have the fans on my side."
