Nottingham Forest sign Gil Bastiao Dias from Monaco

Nottingham Forest have signed winger Gil Bastiao Dias on a season-long loan from AS Monaco.

He becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer, after the arrivals of Michael Dawson, record-signing Joao Carvalho and Diogo Goncalves.

Dias, who has also been part of Portugal’s U21 squad, spent last season on loan at Fiorentina, making 28 appearances and scoring twice.

The transfer comes a day after the departure of Eric Lichaj, who left Forest after five years at the City Ground to join Championship rivals Hull for an undisclosed fee.
