Nottingham Forest are set to announce the signing of Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos from Chelsea.

The young midfielder will join Forest in a straight loan deal after the two clubs finalized an agreement.

Santos is part of Chelsea’s long-term plans, but the club are keen for the youngster to secure regular first-team football this season.

Santos is expected to be formally announced as a Nottingham Forest player shortly.

The midfielder could be available for the clash against Manchester United on Saturday, if he is registered by midday Friday.
