Nottingham Forest are expected to complete the signing of Nuno Tavares and Murillo today.

Tavares is expected to join from Arsenal for a loan fee close to £2million with Forest having the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season for £12million.

Forest will pay around £11.2million plus £2.6million in potential add-ons for Corinthians star Murillo, but that deal will also include an sell-on clause.

Murillo arrived in the UK earlier this week after saying his goodbyes at Corinthians ahead of the move to the Premier League.
