"I’m really happy to be fulfilling my dream of playing in the Premier League and playing for Nottingham Forest," Danilo told the club's official website.

"I learnt a bit about the history of the club and saw they had won two European Cups. I spoke to Gustavo Scarpa as well, and he told me that Nottingham is a great city and Forest have a quality squad with really good staff.”

Forest sporting director Filippo Giraldi added: "He is a fantastic talent that will be a great asset for the present and the future of Nottingham Forest.”

Danilo came through Palmeiras's academy and made 141 appearances in total for the club, scoring 12 goals.
